The Golden Cup [ePub]

by Belva Plain

The second book in the Werner family series (Evergreen being the first).This one focuses on Paul's aunt Hennie Roth and the extended family from the late 1800's through World War I and the years just after.Paul's mother Florence is Hennie's sister.There are a couple of incidents from the previous book which are also included here but mostly it is other family members.
I didn't enjoy this as much as Evergreen, but still enough to give it three stars.Evergreen covered a much broader range of years than this one.I didn't get as much of a sense of the period in this one.Perhaps that is why I didn't like it as much.I enjoy books where I can get sucked into the time period and feel I'm living it right there as I read.For me with this, I had more a role of standing back and observing.
