    A Novel of a Former Time and style. The story deals with customs and ideals which seem quite dated to today;s reader. Thus, in reading this novel we have a glimpse into thoughts and standards of conduct which are no longer apparent or applicable to our 21st century life. et the desire to have one;s dignity and heritage have survived . this seems to give value and weight to the book.

    Being part English and not always proud of it, I delighted in reading this nearly 900-page kindle book. It took me over 12 days of almost non-stop reading. I read slow! I got that flu so this book is how I recovered. Not that I am up on Old English history, poetry, folklore and what- have-you but it was worth reading especially with all the first-hand accounts of the succession from the mother country including names of their Generals, battles and many American heroes were included. SO very fascinating! I loved every minute especially the clean non-graphic accounts of marital bliss and other odd relationships that were woven in as back stories. Mr. T. is one of the finest Novelists of the 18th/19th Century. No one holds a candle to his word-play, puns and visual word-pictures. We are right there in the moment. We are living in the mansions, eating with the guests, playing cards with the table-gamers and losing our money, cassocks, shirts and the even a plantation or two. Although one things is for sure, we are not really losing anything but our time. After the tenth day, my husband looks over from the dishpan and says, "Dear, why don't you pick out a book of the Bible"? I say, This isn't just any book dear, this is American History"! I finish it two days later. I recommend this novel to anyone who has twelve days+ to toss away.

    The book seems more a narrative with any plot deeply embedded in a story line that involves family and national boundaries in a way that only serious readers may follow. However, if you like stories that are difficult (boring?) to follow, this is your book.

    This book was ok but a little tedious. I really liked the characters at first, but they started to get on my nerves after a while. There was some interesting history and some good parts, but I would say the book as a whole was just average. It is the sequel to the History of Henry Edmond, Esq, and I would recommend reading that first as there are lots of allusions made to events that happened in that book, although this book takes place a while later and has different characters (descendants of characters in Henry Edmond).

    Worth the time, historically important.
