Bittersweet by Colleen McCullough

I think I was in junior high when I read my mom's paperback edition of The Thorn Birds. I don't remember much about it other than it took place in Australia and was about some family. Lol. So when I saw this billed as "her first romantic saga since The Thorn Birds," I had to download it from Netgalley.

Meh. I have to say that the elements are all there for a good family epic, but I just didn't like how it was told. Mostly in third tense, but then the occasional 1st or 2nd would really throw me off. The four sisters have a good story to tell, but I didn't feel close enough to them to understand the decisions they were making. I won't be reading another by this author.
