There are four sagas in all, but I liked them all. This one focuses on Bruce Patman's ancestors. First we are introduced to Lady Sophie, a British noblewoman who falls in love with a stablehand. They want to get married, but it is not allowed because Sophie is a blue-blood and her sister betrays her while her family has the poor stablehand 'exported' to America.

However, Sophie marries and when she sees that her daughter is also unhappy, she refuses to let a repeat of history happen. The stableha

Review posted at Will Read for Feels

Nothing evokes the major feels quite like nostalgia. And for most people who were in their teens during the 90s, you would be able to relate when I say that those years were probably golden in terms of music and books for my generation. And nothing speaks to a 90s kid better than the nostalgia feels of Sweet Valley High. I still remember reading through our school library's extensive collection of Sweet Valley Kids, Twins, High, University, and even The Unicor

I first read this twenty something years ago and I remember liking it the most among all the Sweet Valley sagas. It would have been a swift re-read if not for real life stuff that came in between, but I'm happy I took my sweet time with it. Some plotlines and events felt vaguely familiar, and they brought back memories of my early reading life. The trademark Sweet Valley cover also contributed to the nostalgia. :-)

I will and always consider this book as a sweeping epic novel, not Lord of the Rings epic, but to a ten year old me, definitely. I specially liked how their ancestors' lives has always been intertwined, I have never read something like that at that time, and I loved all the love stories of the individuals, how the Male line of the family became rich, how the long lost son was found, that was all wonderful.
