While I am an avid reader, I primarily stick to romances. I would say that my favorites are historical romances, but I love romance novels in every category.
Rarely can a book move me to tears. This one did, more than once. It was a powerful and haunting story. Talk about dysfunctional families! The two sisters in this story have no idea what their mother went through before she met their father and moved to America from Russia. I was gripped with sadness and understanding once the mothers story started being told of her former life. Oh and the first husband and daughter! Aggggg devastating .... just blew me away. But the story was beautifully written and I do plan on reading this one again.
