I love a book that goes back in time and finds out about the past. This book was so educational - attitudes, behaviours and lifestyles all discussed - linking to present day families. Great stuff!
The cover, the blurb and the first few pages, just draw you in. You will not want to put this book down.
All the best made plans can get ruined and this book helps you realised that those plans don’t matter- life will work out just the way it wants to, all the planning in the world won’t make sure you get what you want.
The settings are breathtaking - the mystery behind the missing family member really is a puzzle, I didn’t predict the way the story unravels.
I find it so hard to read about the prejudice, but know it was so real at the time- and is still present today. Peoples stories must be told so that the same mistakes are not made repeatedly and so that people are better to each other.
