Taylor Caldwell is dense, detailed and not always easy: she takes attention as she draws her characters and then draws them together (or apart). Her writing is wonderful, and worth the endeavor. Read full review

He leido este libro, me ha fascinado. Es un libro que nos hace ver como podemos enfermarnos a causa de la pobreza y que muchas veces arrastramos a nuestros seres queridos por el afán de cobrarle a la vida misma, nuestros deseos, frustraciones y que muchas veces no nos damos cuenta del daño que hacemos a todos los que nos rodea. Solamente acumulamos rencores, odios, frustraciones, soledad y asco para aquellas personas que si saben vivir y gozar la vida.
Es un libro maravilloso, extraordinario para mi gusto. Lo recomiendo a aquellas personas que se dedican a almacenar dinero y junto a este el odio de los seres que mas aman.
