There were so many characters and different story lines and such a long book that it was hard to keep track of what was going on. Except that it was not hard to see the main character's prejudice. After a while, it just became noise. But I won't give up on this author.

Kind of a different take on a money hungry family. Jo was a very strong personality. The narration was good, too. I look forward to any sequences.
