I enjoyed this and the setting. I liked the interweaving if stories of different generations of people, linked by shared ancestors and shared stories that were waiting to be discovered.
I'm fascinated by history and how we and the world have come to be where we are. As an amateur historian genealogist, I identified with the uncovering of the past through a house and it's contents. I think many of us would love to do the same.
Being British - a mixture of Welsh, English, Scottish and Irish (the last yet to be verified), I needed to look up a few things I wasn't certain I understood. Thank goodness for the internet. I no longer have to make do with guessing what I think things are. I live not far from France, as the crow flies, and I've been to Le Have. I've also been lucky enough to go to Virginia a couple of times, though not the Chesapeake coast. I've only flown over that. It's not essential to know places in stories but it can help to feel more connected.
The women in this story are fascinating. If they were real I'd rather like to meet them.
