    1. A very interesting novel based on the experiences of one family from the 15th century to present day A very revealing look at what life was like during the Inquisitioin, Elizabethan England and the story of the Templars There were numerous plots that I found distracting until they all were made to come together at the conclusion Even so it held my interest through to the end.

    2. Stopped reading this book because it seems like a second draft There are punctuation errors throughout, words are misused, and the author has trouble with homonyms Example, in describing a drunk, she mentions his read nose This author needs an editor and proofreader in the worst way It may or may not be a good story, but I couldn t keep reading past the errors.

    3. Interesting readaverage story though surprising in partse characters were timeless but the settings could use description to set the scene.
