Here is the first book in the American Blend series. This series is fiction. It is based on the true exploits of two immigrant families and follows their movements through 200 years. The Genet family is from France and the Roberts family is from England. The descendants of the Genet and Roberts families grow with the country, fighting her wars, settling the land and suffering the hardships of the times. The migration west brings a union of these two families into their own American blend, and together they strive to build a nation.
Have just finished listening and was most disappointed at how a most important period of American history was treated. The book appears to have been written for teenagers with the whole subject matter approached in a very superficial way with little depth in the approach taken.
From the very start , the flight from France, the building up of the business in England, the eventual move to America and the subsequent adventures there the whole story seems to be just tripping along like a jolly good adventure with no real substance.
All in all, a most disappointing book, which should have been so much better given the period it covered.
