    Kindle education reference.co Á Leeway Cottage Kindle ê leeway epub, cottage pdf, Leeway Cottage PDF/EPUBI have mixed feelings about this book I enjoyed the beginning reading about Sydney's unhappy childhood She desperately wanted to be loved and approved of especially by her stepmother Candace She finally had enough and was strong enough to take her chances and pursue her dreams in New York I also enjoyed the middle of the book about what it was like in Denmark during WWII I don't know much about Danish history during the war The stories of the Allies and Danish attempts to transport the Danish Jews and Resistant forces was inspiring Reading what Nina went through in the camps was so heartbreaking What I did not enjoy was the last half of the book after the end of the war The b

    Kindle education reference.co Á Leeway Cottage Kindle ê leeway epub, cottage pdf, Leeway Cottage PDF/EPUBLeeway Cottage was everything that I need in a book multi generational family centered history based on fact and a fact that I had been ignorant to somehow characters who fall down hurt each other misunderstand each other but through it all keep on lovingand there is a seuel as well as a previous novel based in the same small summer community of Dundee Maine Although there has been much talk about this being a Holocaust book it honestly is than this it touches on so much down through the years beginning in the late 1800's and working forward to the last few

    Kindle education reference.co Á Leeway Cottage Kindle ê leeway epub, cottage pdf, Leeway Cottage PDF/EPUBThis book published in 2005 feels patently urgently relevant The story of a marriage spanning much of the 20th century it transports the reader to a small community on the Maine coast then Europe during World War II then back to suburban Connecticut in the determinedly hedonistic WASPy 60's then a final flashback to the German concentration camp at Ravensbruck that re casts the entire story in a devastating lightI was profoundly moved by the part of the story that dealt with a mother's hatred of her daughter and how the daughter's stunted emotional growth painfully affects her own husband and childrenBut BUT most affecting in this book is the story of the Danish resistance in

    Kindle education reference.co Á Leeway Cottage Kindle ê leeway epub, cottage pdf, Leeway Cottage PDF/EPUBI only finished this book because every time I said a few pages and I was going to give up it would go a few pages completely enchanting and interesting The book itself though I didn't enjoy for 1 a lot of it was like reading a history book with pages and pages of no story but just stating history of the times I don't mind learning history through fictional books but I don't want to read a history book when I am reading for pleasure also the book was choppy one minute the girl would be newborn and then the next section she would be grown up etc the segeway between the growing up wasn't very goodalso I started out liking Sydney but toward the end of the book I didn't like her and I didn't like how she treated her husbandshe turned into her mother and I would have liked her staying different from her mother

    Kindle education reference.co Á Leeway Cottage Kindle ê leeway epub, cottage pdf, Leeway Cottage PDF/EPUBWhat a contradiction this book is There are basically three stories written here The first part is somewhat entertaining as a family relationship builds The center part about the Danish involvement in World War II is utterly fascinating and could have been extended into a novel by itself The last part is a completely boring pedestrian mess It's as if th

    Kindle education reference.co Á Leeway Cottage Kindle ê leeway epub, cottage pdf, Leeway Cottage PDF/EPUBI don't know how I feel about this one I can't say that I enjoyed it And I can't say that I particularly liked any of the characters either I thought the story about the Danish resistance during World War II was interesting but I felt like that took you out of the story of the marriage of Laurus and Sydney and then you instantly dropped back into it without any transition I guess this is what World War II did to most couples but it was still jarring The author spent half th

    Kindle education reference.co Á Leeway Cottage Kindle ê leeway epub, cottage pdf, Leeway Cottage PDF/EPUBI loved this book No one else I know seems to have been as take with it as I was but I was enthralled from beginning to end I do tend to like character driven novels than plot driven novels and those that include a bit of history always intrigue me Still I sent this novel to all the people I know who might have liked it but none were as fond of it as I Her seuel Goodbye and Amen I also loved though it was not as fine as Leeway Cottage in my mind I've read everything Beth Gutcheon has written and I love her work
