This is one of the best books I have read this year (30 so far)
It is story-telling at its best, page turning mystery in the best sense.
A family saga:interesting characters, hardworking, cursed, villains around the corner.....bonus..... Beautifully written. Would say great summer read....but don't want that to be misunderstood...but if you have only one or two books to read this summer... Read this one!
