rating: 3 of 5 stars
An Aga-saga written by a man... not quite sure what to think of this! It's as good as any of Joanna Trollope's work, one of those quietish reads where there's some sturm-und-drang but not a whole lot of anything.
The prevailing sense of loss and betrayal that the main characters experience does give one pause, particularly Sam's life being divided between those that are pure and those that betray. On the whole, this world seemed very black-and-white, with few shades of grey.
