I do feel like I have not stepped very far afield of the book I just finished--a Toni Morrison novel--in terms of the style, or at least its translation. so that's wonderful. I can tell this will be a challenging family drama, with many secrets, and, I think, secret pains and betrayals, to be explored. hopefully Michele will be able to find out the truth of what happened to Clara, and no one in his own family will try to stop him. good, so far, but a long way to go.
