really liked it
Read in December, 2007

One of those great books that is hard to recommend. This is a pretty detailed family saga spanning several generations and although the details accumulate and build to a satisfying ending sequence, they seem to weigh the book down at times. To summarize briefly without giving away too much, some pretty awful stuff happens to a family of do-gooders. If you do read this, avoid looking at any of the plot descriptions. The effect Mantel achieves in leading us to and finally revealing an unspoken event is devastating, but would likely be ruined by too much advance knowledge of the story.
