3.5 It could be that because I have a large family myself, although more sons than daughters, I could really relate to this story. I most identified with Anna, who was the oldest, she was a crusty, self=determined character that attempted to keep the peace between all living in her house. I was also intrigued about the anti-aging research and enjoyed learning about the olive groves and the transplanting of the trees. {acing was somewhat slow in the beginning and the constant shifts of focus kept the reader from knowing any of the characters thoroughly, but I believe we learn enough to get the general idea of their personalities. This is a good solid, interesting story, one I did enjoy.
