I loved the characters from the first written word describing them until the ending where I sobbed.
Normally I am not an emotional person but the writing and vivid descriptions by this author and of this wonderful story brought me to my knees. Some of the aspects of the story seemed a little fanciful at first but I came to understand their contributions to the telling of the story. The dynamics of the characters and their families were complicated and sad. I highly recommend this book.
