My Review

There is powerful feeling to a Saga – historical novel. Maybe because the events happening are closer to our present and hearts. Maybe because of these events that marked our history. Maybe because of the people that are portrayed.

This book is the first in a series, so it’s an introduction to a group of people and the circumstances and background of the characters. So, we met Marianne and Thea… they were really amazing. Read about them was like reading about a family member I never knew. They had that familiar feeling and I connected with them.

Friendship, family, country life, war, drama, secrets… There are a lot being explored in the novel. We can’t help but be focus and want to know more. We are not only transported to this time period, but also to a plot that although fictional with characters created by the author, it sounded as authentic as any of our grandparents’ tales.

Overall, I enjoyed it so much. It had all I look for in this kind of book. It had a realistic setting and narrative. It had amazing characters that made me connect with their stories and their lives. It had enough secrets, danger and drama. It had the interactions needed to understand the plot, the flow of the novel and for me to see the characters almost in real light.
