♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ This is the beginning of an epic series that drew me in quickly and kept me knowing I would find out the answer at any minute. I love the anticipation of knowing something that your character doesn’t. The novel starts in the 1920s and tells a story of struggle and triumph, mistakes and consequences. The class distinction of the titled and entitled is a hard line, a barrier. This is the stuff of mankind, maybe a part of being human; quite possibly as a species, we don’t learn and nothing changes? Archer tells the story from each main character’s viewpoint. I found it interesting to relive a scene from a different character’s perspective. It had been awhile since I had jumped into an historical fiction and I’m happily reminded that I love that genre. I’ll put The Sins of the Father on my to read list.
