I would like to say I really enjoyed the book but I didn’t. I can’t say it was a bad book because it wasn’t. It was just slow. It was well written. The story line seemed to progress slowly. There was definitely a lot to think about after you finished the book. The summary on the back of the book talks about the three brothers who have inherited the mine. Aaron the oldest sees everything through the lens of the Bible. Nathan the middle brother is mentally challenged and Hector the youngest works in the mine extracting the ore. The summary talks about a tragedy and an ultimate cover-up. You don’t find out what happens until the last couple of pages. By then it was kind of a let down. As I read I kept thinking about a slow lazy summer day that sapped all of your strength. That is how slow the reading went for me. I am sure that there are people out there who would love this book but it just wasn’t a right fit for me. If I gave stars I would have given this three and a half stars. It was middle of the road for me.
