The book is very well written (which I always love) but the story is like a strung together, and somewhat misjointed, series of village myths. I had a hard time relating to any character or any story line.

I love to read a variety of books, and even though I had to wait almost a year to finally receive my copy thru, it was not worth the least for me! Part fairy tale, part reality, it kept going back and forth so at times, I wasn't sure where it was happening. Thankfully, someone else requested the book and now at least I'll regain a credit :)

Interesting, stream of consciousness mixed with folk lore and fantasy.

I guess this book is just not my cup of tea. I've only read about half of it and I don't think that I'll finish it. It is very well written but i just can't connect with it or any characters. It skips back and forth in time and is I guess in some ways a fantasy. I can't even figure out where it takes place. I hardly ever don't finish a book, even if I don't like it, but I'm not sure about this one.

I finished the book but I can't tell you really what happened. Family history strung together with town myths and it made it difficult to follow. I am not even sure what area of the world they were in.
