There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The only downside to this book was an egregious editing error, which was a surprise as one of the many things I like about this series is the lack of same. Kitty's maiden name is McBride; however, when her half-brother turns up, she wonders who this person could be with a name "the same as hers." His last name is not McBride, but Mackenzie. That error aside, I highly recommend this read. I am looking forward to the others and the solving of the PaSalt mystery!

I didn’t expect to like CeCe but I was wrong.
She has her frailties and lack of self belief which all becomes very apparent in the story.
Personally I didn’t like the relationship development between Kitty and her husband’s brother. For me that’s forbidden territory but I guess it added significantly to the story.
What I like about the book and development of CeCe’s character is that, like the previous books in the series, it’s left open for our imagination to think what we would like to think, lots remains unanswered.
The story again is very well crafted with a wonderfully expert link to the past and the story around those forbearers.
There are still unanswered questions as to why these girls were adopted and how come the adopting dad was on the spot at the time. Also who is he and how did he make his money? Is he really dead?
Why was there no seventh sister? I doubt we will get answers.
The fifth sister, Tiggy, is next and I really don’t know what to expect as not much of her personality has been unveiled so far.
I believed in the struggles of the times, that were apparent in both Europe and in the far West at the times where war was abound, but of course this was relayed in short by the context of the novel. This one encompassed a lot of lonely twists and turns in both present and past and melancholy trips with hidden catastrophes and dramas were eloquently put, whilst in the same sense captivating the reader to envisage the harsh landscape through a narrow lens as it were, through rougher times for women of all classes. As we are commemorating 100 years of the rights of women, the tale seems both rife and apt for times that were only processed through courage compassion, and humanity. All this and more is found in the book.
