it was amazing
bookshelves: book-club

February Smart Women Book Club selection.
I knew nothing of this book nor the author before it was selected by my Book Club for our March read. I cannot say enough about it. I found it compelling, and could hardly put the book down. A family's saga spanning approximatly 80 years. Each chapter told in a different voice; each voice so different. There were so many layers, things left unsaid, feelings not given into. Much sorrow and strength within this family's story. The writing was beautiful. As soon as I finished it, I passed it onto a friend. Well worth the read. I don't think I will ever forget this story.
