This is an extremely detailed story that I don’t this can be jumped right into because it starts “in the middle” of Leda’s story and can be difficult to follow if you don’t know the backstory. It is my recommendation that “The Italian Saga” be read, in order, first.
It is wonderful reading about women in the STEM field and how there are STILL different standards for men and women Ph.D. candidates.
As with other stories I have read by this author, the writing is incredibly detailed and I did skim quite a bit. At the core of this story are relationships of the most complex type. Intricacies in human behavior and how one reacts to different settings and personalities.
Well written and plotted, this story can continue for years to come as life unfolds.
