    Swan PDF/EPUB ½ Paperback swan ebok, Swan ePUBIt appears I like this novel than other readers I LOVED it Francis Mayes author of Under the Tuscan Sun has written a novel taking place at an archelogical dig in Itlay a humid small town of Swan Georgia and finally Palo Alto Ca A brother and sister close in their appreciation and love for one another are survivors of family tragedies and the events of the book give them an opportunity to re define their love for and understanding of their parents and their knowledge of themselves The language of the novel is beautiful the many descriptions poetic and though not all the ends are tightly wo

    Swan PDF/EPUB ½ Paperback swan ebok, Swan ePUBWell let's just say that the critiques of this book are misleading This is a fine light romantic Southern gothic tale of family members who don't always know the whole story and is told in Mayes usual fine style and language Made for good reading in my opinion

    Swan PDF/EPUB ½ Paperback swan ebok, Swan ePUBStarts out well and remains interesting until the end when the author seems to just want to end the book She also kept adding characters and giving them meaningless chapters The main characters find out after 20 yrs that their mother was murdered rather than committed suicide and they are just like whew I feel better knowing that and just go on with their lives

    Swan PDF/EPUB ½ Paperback swan ebok, Swan ePUBI absolutely LOVE all of Frances Mayes' books and this was no exception I went into this concerned that I wouldn't love her fiction as much as I enjoy her stories of Tuscany but what a fabulous story The setting is Georgia after a grim discovery of a woman unearthed from her grave The children of this woman were told she had committed suicide but upon further discovery it was found that she was murdered a relief to them after so many years The characters in this book are so well developed and I became quite attached to them in the story Ginger the daughter lives in Italy having escaped her southern roots for a different world JJ the son struggles with his inner life and relationships until he begins to find healing as he learns about his par

    Swan PDF/EPUB ½ Paperback swan ebok, Swan ePUBWell I didn't like it The premise of the story is a good one perhaps but I found the characters weak and the story disjointed There is no grab to get the reader interestedto read five chapters and not find anything of interest except to catch glimpses of unrelated events Sorry but no vote here

    Swan PDF/EPUB ½ Paperback swan ebok, Swan ePUBI absolutely loved this book The author made the transition from Italy to Georgia easy to follow and the hint of mystery of what really happened to Catherine was never resolved in my mind And did JJ go back to California to pursue his love interest? Is there another follow up book? So many questions which makes me interested in following other books with this author

    Swan PDF/EPUB ½ Paperback swan ebok, Swan ePUBThe story itself was good moved a liitle slowly like a hot humid Georgia summer which when the story takes place The ending however was very dissappointing it just stopped There were still things left unfifnshed

    Swan PDF/EPUB ½ Paperback swan ebok, Swan ePUBThe feeling I got from reading this book was like having warm butter melting in my mouthI know that sounds a bit flowery but where there is a tragic event that scarred a family I’m all in eager to know what happened when it happened and so how the family talk about itNow here with Catherine Mason gone her husband in a nursing home unaware of his surroundings there are her children Ginger an Architect and JJ wellhe’s the one who loves his time alone in the woods It’s a beautiful tale of two children who are grieving their mother their childhood and most of alla family that’s looking to deal with a tragedy they never saw comingI loved the insights on the characters They are as complex as they are unraveled but you can’t help but enjoy how crisp the author brings this to lightLily had opinions but refused to examine them p136The events in the story take place in 7 days or so from July 7 1975 to July 14I could relate to JJ at some point when he
