Easy to read five star classic
16 June 2016
I read the blurb of this book and thought it wasn't for me, and so I reluctantly started to read this mammoth historical fiction as a favour to my mother who was unwavering in her insistence that I would love it. All I can say is that I was wrong and she was right!
This book read like a film/movie in my head. It was absolutely nothing like I had expected and was all absorbing from start to finish. An easy to read epic classic.
An astounding five star read from start to finish.
