Trying not to judge this book by its cover... but wow, it's pretty average. But I suppose I can ignore it in favour of the excellent reviews.

I do love epic romances that span across years instead of months. This one started when Alix was 8 years old and continued on well into her 30's. I love books like that. Sprawling romances I like to call them .

As far as sprawling romances go, this was neither the best or worst that I've read. I enjoyed it. It was a smooth and easy read. It did start to drag out towards the end. There were so many issues that could have been solved if everyone just communicated with each other. But maybe that's true in life in general. But it dragged because it was predictable - it was obvious what was coming so it was tedious seeing the inevitable drag out.

But still a nice read :)
