it was ok

This story follows the main character Nancy throughout her life...literally. It starts in 1910 when she is eleven years old and takes us with her through her adulthood to 1930.

I enjoyed the idea of following a character to experience all her life's trials and tribulations but found myself losing interest on more than one occasion. Although I thought the writing was great and depicted the time perfectly, the story itself was just too long for me.

Nancy is a seer of sorts where she can see and receive messages from the dead. It was very interesting at first, but just not fast paced enough to keep me craving for more.

Perhaps if this book was broken down into a series I would have enjoyed following Nancy more.

If you're one for historical romances with a slower steady pace, I'd recommend this read.
