A book that covered three generations, but consentrated heavily on two or three individuals only.

The book was partly easy to read, partly, especially the passages of heavy religious content, less appealing for me. It is a classic that was at first banned, which is hard to understand with our enlightened thinking, but overall I was pleased to have continued and persevered to the end, as the whole seemed worthy of it's time, and sections were 'modern' and descriptive, if a little overstated, here and there with repetition of certain passages, that was meant, for emphasis perhaps, but over egged ...somewhat.
