Book Review: The Children's Book

Wow, this book is long!  It runs about 650 pages, and it is slooooow.  The book follows the Wellwood family (mother, father, and seven children, along with some of their close friends and relatives), the members of which suffer intrigue, scandal, loss, and tragedy during the years from 1895 to the first World War.   357 more words
