Cand am cumparat aceasta carte,nici nu stiam la ce sa ma astept avand in vedere ca nu am mai citit nimic scris de Elizabeth Adler si ca aceasta carte este scrisa in anii 90.
Cartea a stat ceva timp pe raftul bibliotecii mele pana cand m-am hotarat sa o citesc.Adevarul este ca aceasta carte se citeste destul de greu.

This book was my all time favorite that I have read! It intertwines what starts out as two people that turns into at least ten.

Maude is the main character that takes you through her mother and aunt's life story. Maude's aunt, Lilly has her life handed to her on a silver spoon while her sister, Ciel has to watch it and not recieve the same amenities that Lilly gets. ...more

Loved this book! Read it on vacation so I hardly put it down. The story was interesting and I loved the setting. Towards the end, it did seem to going in a hundred different directions in order to tie all the story together.

Historia romantica, com suspense e dramatismo. Óptima para ler na esplanada junto ao mar, entre mergulhos no mar...

we spent a delightful four days at a charming cottage at bodega bay and this was a perfect beach read. ...good characters, a good story line and a happy ending.

Un long très long roman, on commence à embarquer dans l'histoire à la moitié du livre. Au final, un beau roman.

I really enjoyed this book. Involving generations of Irish families. The story told by a wonderful enchanting character. Proving revenge is not sweet!

This was a fun book to read. It was many stories that interlaced about the various characters and how they affect the current time. It would be a great book to read on vacation!
