Wow. This novel is different than any one I have ever read. It is entertaining,weaving a tale of family and antiques. As you are reading along, totally involved in the characters and their lives, suddenly you are hit with a spiritual truth so deep, you have to put the book down and just sit to try to absorb it. just, WoW!
Excellent, well-researched novel. Multi-layered plot with great characters. An adventure of integrity into the lives and minds of a down-trodden, but stalwart people. This story provides many scenes for contemplation. I highly recommend this book to those who enjoy ruminating over history and human character as they read.
