In critique groups, we often hear "show don't tell." Well, I totally get it now. This book (aside from the opening chapter) is all telling and I just couldn't get into it. It sounded like an interesting story, but the author keeps us at arms length from the characters. I'm sure she has a good reason, trying to keep the word count down in a large, sweeping story. But, I wish she would have limited the time frame and let us in to the characters a little more.
