Review by jayne_charles
A decent read overall, but I thought the early stages, dealing with sisters one of whom emigrated to Australia, went on a bit too long. It was more interesting once we got to the wartime, and more modern characters. The author's feminist politics are all over it, but given that it's a family saga about women one can hardly complain.
