Book Review: Flesh and Blood by Michael Cunningham

This one was worth the investment.

This could have easily been another example of reading until the very end and ending up disappointed but this book was worth it. The story follows Costantine Stassos, a Greek immigrant that comes to America with nothing. While he might not explain to his family about his background and humble beginnings that make him the way he is, it's a legacy that carries through this entire story that traces through the next generation.

Constantine marries and has three children who each receive attention in this plot throughout their challenging lives. Each personality and intertwining story is full of detail and realism that I found that I really got to know everyone, complete with their flaws, dreams and achievements.

And again, the end was really worth it. Recommend! It truly is an American story.
