This book is a little hard to get into, but oh my god, am I glad I stuck with it! It is a little confusing in the beginning, with too little information given to the reader. Some of the language choices made the reading, especially at the beginning, awkward.Setting aside the negatives (of which there are few), a couple of chapter in, I was so hooked that I stayed up all night to finish the book. As the world of Black Wine becomes clear and the women’s stories are pulled together I found myself enjoying the rich universe that Dorsey created. It is so worth a read, the dark and fascinating plot lines of the individual women are woven together so beautifully and her unique way of telling a story spanning several generations make this book worth a look at.
