    Named for a flower whose blood-red sap possesses the power both to heal and poison, Bloodroot is a stunning fiction debut about the legacies of magic and madness, faith and secrets, passion and loss that haunt one family across the generations, from the Great Depression to today. The novel is told in a kaleidoscope of seamlessly woven voices and centers around an incendiary romance that consumes everyone in its path.

    Martha Trupiano says: "Amazing story"
    "Super depressing with many loose ends"
    Overall

    I listened to this book based on its generally favorable reviews, but unfortunately is was a big waste of time. I trudged through the different story lines as they got more and more depressing because I thought the ending would have to connect all the subplots and character actions, but it doesn't. There are no characters that you can really root for or connect with. The only positive of this book were the different narrators. They were very good. Don't waste your time with this book.

    Young Nicholas Hook is dogged by a curse, haunted by what he has failed to do and banished for what he has done. A wanted man in England, he is driven to fight as a mercenary archer in France, where he finds two things he can love: his instincts as a fighting man, and a girl in trouble. Together they survive the notorious massacre at Soissons, an event that shocks all Christendom. With no options left, Hook heads home to England, where his capture means certain death.

    Andrew says: "Fantastic!"
    "Great book!!!"
    Overall

    Good story, great character building, very historically accurate. Must read, but warning: battle scenes are very graphic.
