it was amazing
Read in January, 2004

I love epic stories which span lifetimes and generations and Tim Pears' prose just sings in "In a Land of Plenty." I was son intimately invloved with the characters as the decades unfloded that the final scenes were gutwrenching, both in their sorrow and in the knowledge that the story was coming to its conclusion. I also have a soft spot for this book, as it delves into historical English cookery, a passion of mine.

Pears captures the turbulence both within and without a single family, demonstrating how events and other individuals shape people in different ways, even when their experiences are shared.
