This sound like an epic read and something I would definitely enjoy. A little family drama with a little mystery. I definitely would love to see more of this, will check it out when I have the chance.

The whole story revolves around a single family hence doesn't tell the societal concept.

I think it's a great novel. With the few contents I have read it has given me the urge and interest in knowing what happens when the family secret is revealed

The mystery unfolds with Eden as a common thread that keeps the family connected. Throughout the highs and lows of each individual story, love and family prevails. I enjoyed reading this book.

It sounds like there are some really great narratives in this book. I love how it sounds like the secrets and personalities drive the characters and that we as readers get to experience those emotions. I can see how some of those secrets could truly change lives, and an unexpected pregnancy could certainly impact a family that is wealthy and has a lot riding on their own reputation. This sounds fascinating.

Lovely review. The fact that nobody is portrayed as being a super human makes it sound more relatable and realistic. Well done
