engaging, not compelling- no direction home
very good book. if you have problem with your memory better take some noted who is who. it's little bit confusing since some characters appear in dif part of story
Not great but hard to put down
Wouldn't particularly recommend
Great story over time that shows traits passed down through genertions.
Wonderful storytelling. Hard to put down.
didn't finish.......a saga of different generations of a family centred around a violin and thievery....started out well, but became the same old over and over....didn't finish....OK but not great
"Like Kim Edwards’s bestseller The Memory Keeper’s Daughter, Joyner’s Dream is a multi-generational novel that unearths one family’s secrets as a way of exploring how the future is a very odd fusion of the present and the past. Told in the words of the members of the Joyner-Fitzhelm clan, who start, continue, edit and end a secret journal between 1788 and 2006, Joyner’s Dream follows the lives lived and the music played by the fiddlers of the family, beginning with the public-house tunes and tales of the busker Blind France, preserved by his grandson in late-18th-century England."
