I was a bit put off by the fact that in my Kindle Version, the "l"s were missing behind the "f"s. The flight assistant was a "fight" assistant. A flat was the "fat", flew was "few" and in one instance fly was "fy". Very strange. In my opinion, this needs seeing to.
If you like family saga, this is your book. It has a great plot, with plenty of drama and secrets. There is enough information given to be satisfied and enough unknown to keep you on your toes (as you can see from how fast i read it). I was a little disappointed in the ending, not because it was bad, it was just on the more realistic side. I suppose i was hoping for a fairytale ending, which if it was i probably would have said `The ending was quite unrealistic, after all the family went through, the fact it ended like a fairytale made it boring and predictable'. Haha. Can't win. I would definitely read this again.
I could not put it down and finished it extremely quickly and then felt sorry to say farewell to the wonderful characters.
