it was amazing
Read in January, 2011

** spoiler alert ** It is a Hungarian Gone With the Wind tracing one generation through the Revolution through WWII. The cool part is 2/3 the way through the author, while providing hints before, identifies the primary family as Jewish. 600 pages is quite a bit of reading but the detail is what makes the story. The author leaves you with no question but nothing is over dwelt upon either. This sort of book would never make the cut with today's editors but I a so very glad I read it.
