Lori I keep seeing this one, and feel somewhat drawn to it, but dont seem to be able to pull it from the shelf to buy it yet... Since we seem to have similar taste, do you think it would be something I would like??

JSou It was pretty good. I actually wanted to rate it about 3.5 stars though. It was one of those that totally sucked me in while I was reading it, but once I put it down, it would take me a bit to pick it back up again.

The story went back and forth from present day to different times in the narrator's genealogy and it was pretty interesting.

JG (The Introverted Reader) I'm glad you liked it! And it looks like you worked it into two challenges? Great!

JSou I did enjoy this one. There were some parts where I guessed what was coming, but I've always been interested in genealogy and different ancestries. It was perfect timing for both of my challenges!
