I have to admit, at first, I didn't really feel anything for this family at the beginning. I even considered packing it away. However, the more I read, the more I felt. This family went through a whole bunch of hardships most families face, but they also had the Great War and the Influenza Flu epidemic. The latter really hitting the family and those around them really bad.
I really was moved by this book and thoroughly enjoyed my journey with this family.
By the end of the book, I was actually sorry to see them go. Ending it on a somewhat more happy note really made the tears flow.
An incredible story of a family who loved, lost and lived.
