    5 out of 5 stars 12

The house was built in the Old Queen's time: built for an Elizabethan pirate who was knighted for the plunder he brought home. It survived many eras, many reigns: it saw the passing of Cromwell and the Civil War. It became rich with an Indian Nabob and poor with a 20th century innkeeper. It saw wars, and lovers, and death. Children were born there, both heirs and bastards. It had ghosts and legends and a history that grew stranger with every generation.

Mostly Unpleasant

Overall
2 out of 5 stars

Somehow the title led me to think that it would be full of blessings. It is mostly a saga of frustration, missed opportunities and bitterness, generation after generation. The blessings take hundreds of years to arrive.
