This book follows 4 generations of women as they evolve as wives and mothers. The title comes from the idea of this sins of one generation being carried forward to future generations. It was interesting and engaging, and while I didn't necessarily identify with any of the characters (in terms of my own life experience), it did remind me how much I enjoyed falling in love with my husband.

It also leads the reader to wonder how many of the choices that we make are made with true freedom, and how many are made in unconscious reaction to our upbrining. THe novel absolutely addresses sin (defined as violation of a commandment of God), faith, repentence, forgiveness, and the long term consequences of sin. I enjoyed the book and the point of view that it shared. I would recommend it to anyone, and am considering it as a book club novel.
