    One thought on “Daneclere”

    1. 2 Stars 1 For the story1 For the coverOnly on page 7, I knew I wouldnt like the characters nor their stories.Honor who is supposedly wise, kind and steady, a good wife A suffering mother She turned her eyes back to the child, with a fuzz of light brown hair on it s scalp, looking like Richard s Suddenly she knew that she had no love for it, any than she had for it s father I m suppose to feel sympathetic for this woman Well never mind the rest of the players here are just as bad.Cruelties, hard [...]

    2. Bleh I don t mind the darkness of the story, but the prose is annoying Distant characters, confusing dialogue e.g switching speakers mid paragraph whut , an army of barely described faces with too similar names, history that is vague yet uber important to the bland characters reactions And did I mention the time gaps Irregular, random gaps of hours or months in the middle of chapters, with years between Parts 1 2 Even worse, they re years which create significant change in personality circumstan [...]

    3. Honor Thwaite is of ordinary stock, but her father has enough money to get her married up to Richard Sawtrey of Daneclere Not exactly a happy marriage, it isn t a terrible one either and she does her duty seeing to the family manor and raising her children Honor s story begins at the time of England s Civil Wars, and continues through those of Cromwell well, he wasn t exactly king but you know what I mean , Charles II, brother Jamie, the glorious revolution and That s a very brief run down, bu [...]

    4. Okay, so you d think a family saga set in Cromwell s and post Cromwell England would score a big hit with me, but this fell very much short for me I don t have a problem with the nitty gritty rapes that occasionally took place, but just about every one female and male who was raped ended up enjoying it and begging for Really Really I still can t get past that and it ruined the rest of the story for me All the good period dialog and setting got buried in this ridiculous rape stuff Ugh Pass on th [...]

    5. Dark and depressing No happy endings for anyone I really hate it when I pick up a book that looks interesting, read the whole darned thing, and then wish I could have that time back Are we supposed to believe that the majority of people back then were that awful Including Honor Sawtrey Since I ve marked this as containing spoilers, here we goHonor Sawtrey is described as good kind, a good wife motherally She privately despised her husband, and as soon as she gave birth to her first child, decide [...]

    6. I love the concept of many lives under one roof, and seeing how they all branch out in different directions This book has some uncomfortable and disturbing parts to it, but I still like it because it represents real issues I have read this book about 5 times and I love it each time.
