Overall customer rating: 5.000

Fantastic Adventure, exceptionally well written

by flyinkell on Mar 29, 2010

Characters seem real, and like "Gone With the Wind", you just have to find out what happens to them. Two tremendously different sisters, a tragic accident, a life of sorrow...or is it? Determination not to become a victim...but to become feared. Set in Brazil in the 1930's, it's a tale of civil development, how folks willingly compromise their soul for money/status, and how some folks will never compromise on anything. Fiction based on historical FACTS. Bad guys galore, but what is so alluring in this novel, is the reader starts to identify with, and understand, the desperados. We effortlessly dip into the dark side. Many unpredictable twists and turns. Lovely scenery depictions, facinating historical fiction...I didn't want the book to end. Highest possible recommendation!
