Read in February, 2008

I'm a sucker for good, thickly plotted historical fiction and this was quite an entertaining and surprisingly good read. Spanning something like a hundred and fifty years and three generations in the feud between two families, it's pretty much got everything I look for in a good historical fiction read. Got sucked in over the weekend, devoured it in a couple of days. I seriously can't wait to get the sequel now!
