Product Description

Product Description

America at the turn of the century. For the enterprising immigrant - a land of optimism and hope. From the hardship and poverty of Wales in 1890 this is the story of the Griffiths family and their journey to succeed in the new country. Henke describes the excitement of the pioneers in the early twentieth century. A tale of intrigue and adventure - the characters come to life against the backdrop of the time. You will not want to put this book down.

A Million Tears is a mighty epic, a tale of love and hate, murder and suicide, poverty and wealth – this is a story of a family whose devotion for each other helps them to succeed where others fail.

Fascinating story by Paul Henke, makes you want to read the rest as this is the first of a series. Paul is a very good storyteller with his story starting in Wales as told by the grandfather - I guarantee you will not be able to put it down.

HASH(0x9c41fd5c) out of 5 stars A Million Tears Sept. 11 2011
By Felicia - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I bought this book without knowing anything about it. I bought it to take on a long international flight, needing something that would last several hours. I could not put the book down; when I finished I passed it on to my friend who also could not put the book down. The book captures the intimate relationships of a family throughout their journey from birth to immigration, poverty to wealth, life and death situations. It is impossible to put this book down and plan on losing sleep! I immediately ordered the second in the series!!!

Had to write and say how much I enjoyed this book. Family sagas are a favorite of mine and this one did not disappoint. My only criticism would be that it had a pretty slow start and I almost stopped reading. Decided to give it a few more pages and am really glad I did. Hope to read more by this author.

HASH(0x9c6467b0) out of 5 stars Brilliant book -immigration into the US brought to life Dec 4 2011
By philiplmarno - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This book was recommended by a friend who is an avid reader. She said she can't remember when she last read such a good book. It wasn't my usual type of read but I thought I'd give it a try. Wow! The characters jumped off the page and became so real that I started to miss them when the book was finished so I immediately got hold of the next 3 books in the series. Learned a huge amount about the period. The first book starts with an impoverished welsh family from the mining area of Wales and their joys and tribulations as they build a new life in the States at the beginning of last century. Such good stories - I feel they must make a film of the book.

HASH(0x9c40d5e8) out of 5 stars A bit disappointed. March 8 2012

After reading "A Million Tears", I doubt I will read the others in the series. It's not badly written (although the author does seem to have a bit of trouble with the comma and semi-colon---often just left out entirely). However, what has the potential to be a really good family saga needs some polishing. Parts of the story were very interesting, in spite of the rather pedantic story-telling style, but then the next few parts would drag, drag, drag. Once I forced myself through the draggy parts, I enjoyed the rest. It did not grab me enough to make me want to continue reading the future volumes, however.

I'm sorry I couldn't give it more stars. A project this ambitious is a lot of work to write. But the language needs to be sharper and the characters more three-dimensional. It needs a rewrite.

HASH(0x9c86cdc8) out of 5 stars A difficult book to review Sept. 25 2012
By Basil - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The first half of this book deserves 5 stars. The author did a lot of research to write this book, and there are many short stories within one. When I read past the second half, I couldn't go on, as it seemed to me like it was going no where. I think this author is an excellent writer -- but just needs to wrap it up a little tighter, and sooner. There are many interesting details in this book, and most of it was very interesting. I really wanted to give it 5 stars, but when you get tired of reading the book, I don't think it should have five, I am sorry to say.
