Decent "beach" read...
on June 5, 2010
First of all, thank you Mrs. Clark for all of the written works you have given us. I have enjoyed them every time I read them and re-read them.
The basic premise of this book "Who are my ancestors?" is not original, but interesting none the less. It is not always clear whom the main character actually is or what the main thesis(s) of the novel is/are: medicine vs religious faith, or who am I? The various sub plots quickly overtake the main plot lines, the love interest is barely touched on and that relationship seems to be added to the story as an afterthought. I agree with other reviewers that there seems to be an unusual amount of errors in this printing: character names mixed up, spelling errors, unfinished quotes, etc. Additionally, baby aspirin? Sorry, not for babies anymore. Bottles at 19 months, again, not in the current U.S. culture. If one over looks these editing mistakes, it is a pleasant read. Not as edgy as earlier novels, but, I don't always need edgy.
