Once again, from the pen of best-seller novelist James Michener.
an all-embracing and comprehensive historical drama…this time the Chesapeake Bay area as the backdrop.
In typical Michener fashion of circa a thousand pages, every chapter is wonderfully portrayed with colorful characters and their descendants evolving for four hundred years.
The chapters on slave ships and the ensuing outcomes of this horrific practice in history are extremely well represented, shocking and heart-wrenching.
Michener was without a doubt a brilliant, gifted and exceptional storyteller in his portrayal of particle places throughout the day.
