The attention to detail is first rate. The author's deft hand puts forth very realistic depictions of the times. The story is for me very moving. The elegance of the language obviously written by a gifted writer with insight, is outstanding. The gift of story telling is in-born and this author obviously has been thus blessed.
Throughout the endless succession of births, marriages and deaths that provide the plot of this book, Mary is always there to fight for her family. Her passing marks the end of the novel but not the end of the McMurdo story as the author leaves a little teaser for book No.2. Having thoroughly enjoyed my time in their company, I will definitely be back to see what life holds for the McMurdos throughout the 20th century.
