Run Time: 4 hrs and 42 mins


Joe disappears, leaving Clara practically at the alter, yet again. That messes with her head pretty good. Mary’s still in pain from stuff in the previous book. Her husband’s still kinda clueless.

Additional Comments:

  • As usual, there’s a lot going on.
  • There are a lot of spots in this series where ya just want to reach in and smack some sense into the characters, but thankfully, such moments were less in this final book. There are still a few minor threads that are unresolved, but all the main ones have satisfactory conclusions.
  • There’s even a nice twist concerning one of the semi-villainous characters.
  • The series is kind of like Downton Abby. Lots of drama. Less drama with the servants this round.
  • Not many new characters since we’re so far along in the series. Jimmy’s new, I think.
  • The epilogue is all right. It wraps up a few things and kind of slaps a “they lived happily ever after” sticker on the saga.
  • Very much character driven with all the triumphs and pitfalls of those sorts of tales. I got bogged down a few months because the characters were being dumb, but overall, it’s a satisfying tale.


Decent conclusion to a clean historical fiction about some rich folks in the early 1900’s. I think WWI is covered and it starts a few years before that, so 1910’s and early 1920’s. Not that I’m a huge consumer of the genre, but in my limited experience, there aren’t too many family sagas that cover this timespan in America. A nice change of pace from murder and mayhem.
