it was amazing

A compelling family drama of love, hate and everything in-between. Trillium is a multi-family saga, told over several generations. A story of the European settlement in the wine-making region known as Niagara in the Golden Horseshoe region, Ontario, Canada. Spanning over a 250 year period from 1750's to 2001.

Three men settle to make their fortune and raise their families. The story sweeps through each family story, moving onto the next generation, revealing unrequited love, family loyalties, misplaced trust, and retribution. As the financial success of those who have passed is handed down through inheritance, it brings with it greed and heartbreak. Characters to love and hate, leap from the pages, as the author has filled the storyline with descriptive prose throughout. I love this in a book, to be able to imagine the scene, the people because it really pulls you in to a story.

There are plenty twists to keep the reader compelled throughout, which is why I would recommend this book as a thoroughly enjoyable read.
