I really liked this book. It is a older copy about 3 woman fathered by the same man in three very different areas of the world and coming together to meet him.

What a Wonderful Book!, August 15, 2000
Reviewer: Pam from Texas

An Englishman has three daughters by three women in different parts of the world. Unable to be with them as they grow up, he sends for them when they are older so they can be together. The book revolves around each daughter and what impact their absent father has on their lives. One of the daughters is Scottish, the second Chinese, and the third an English girl raised in India.
The descriptions of the scenery and total ambiance of each locale made me see, smell, and feel where they were. When I read about Ailsa Rose in Scotland, I saw the mists and waterfalls of the highlands. With Li-an, China came alive for me with its gentle women but politically unstable atmosphere. With Genevra, I saw the poverty and untouchables of India. I could see everything so clearly because Davis drew me into the stories. I confess to liking Ailsa Rose's story better than the other two though I got emotional through parts of it. Li-an drew my sympathy because she inherited her blue eyes from her father and had to always keep her eyes lowered because her countrymen would kill her if they knew. Generva had to bear the shame of her father and mother's adulterous affair that resulted in her birth. Anyone who loves reading about foreign places and romance will love this book. I don't consider this a romance book but romance is a strong factor. The book has two sequels that I haven't read yet but I bought them as soon as I read Too Deep For Tears. It's a truly wonderful book.
