These folks are great storytellers, and I love the work. The only reason I use 4 instead of 5 stars is that it is just so long. I think the story could have been told as well in a shorter book. Just my opinion. But I really LOVE the storytelling and the story. I keep buying their work and reading it, but the length becomes a problem at some point. ( )
