What other readers are saying about this title:
** 1/2 stars. As a lawyer in a large Manhattan firm, just shy of making partner, Clementine Evans has finally achieved almost everything she’s been working towards, but now she’s not sure it’s enough. Her long hours have led to a broken engagement and, suddenly single at thirty-four, she feels her messy life crumbling around her. But when the family gathers for her grandmother Addie’s ninety-ninth birthday, a relative lets slip hints about a long-buried family secret, leading Clemmie on a journey into the past that could change everything. . . .What follows is a story that spans generations and continents. From the inner circles of WWI-era British society to the skyscrapers of Manhattan and the red-dirt hills of Kenya, the never-told secrets of a woman and a family unfurl. This is not a bad book - I liked many of the characters, but for me there is still a very large unexplained gap in the life of one of the main characters and the boy meets girl, boy and girl are alienated, boy and girl resolve differences and fall madly in love story has been told ad nauseum. Why is it that so many authors believe that a man is always needed to make a woman's life meaningful? If you are more of a "romance" oriented person than I, you may find this book delightful. Mild recommendation.
