Children Of Liberty By Paullina Simons Post-Review

Children Of Liberty     By Paulina Simons      Post- Review

Summary:

     At the turn of the Century and the dawning of the modern world, the fortunes and future of the Barringtons and Attavianos become entertwined on a collision course between the old and the new, between what is expected and what is desired, what is chosen and what is bestowed, what is given and what is taken away.

My Thoughts:
      This is a fairly lighthearted read that centers around the romance of fourteen year old Gina, who arrives from Italy and Harry Barrington a wealthy son ,who is twenty one at the time. She pursues him for six years even though he is engaged to someone else.
      It also has reference to the Panama Canal construction, which is the pet project of Harry's friend, Ben. I'll have to read the other books in this series to really compare. I can't say I didn't like the book, but found it to be a little long.

  1. I agree with you that sometimes when the book is very long, even if the story is very good it does drag a bit!
