What a doozey.
I thought this book was wonderful. It was a little bit of a challenge for me to get in to. Something about the beginning might have been a little choppy for me. I found myself going back to reread whose father's cousin was who and who was from where in what region. And that's not even being fair, because look back the beginning was a very beautiful scene with beautiful phrases shaping it. UGH, I'm a mess. Contradicting myself.
This story was deep and intense, going down to the very thing that in some way shape or form defines us. Our beginning, our family line, what our blood represents and the land we first grew up on.
It was full of dirty secrets, compassion, anger, hate, love, sorrow and so so soooo much more.
