Quite unexpectedly, I really loved this novel. I didn't think I would enjoy it, but I was fascinated by its sweep and by Bennett's exploration of one family over the course of more than 40 years. In many ways, I felt like time was one of the characters, as its effects were often more prominent than the actions of the main characters. Highly recommended!
