On the Edge of History Nov 11, 2007
I never heard of the small island of Faial in the Azores until I read this novel. What a great source of historical data to have found after all of these years of an American familiy's history through the ages. The valuable documentation of the way they lived and how they really paid attention to the education of their children and doing business the right way. This family truly made a difference in everyone's life during that period and they were highly recognized for the support and care that they gave to all of those around them. I would highly recommend reading this novel,it captures life as it was in the 19th century.

The book was well written account of one particular family and their influence on history and politics. This family has a influence that has long been since forgotten except only in archives. The book is well written and choreographed into something that is an enjoyable read.
