The House of Gold by Natasha Solomons

I got all excited when I first read the synopsis because its' setting during WWI and the family saga and I adore historical novels.
The first half is pre-war and talks of Greta, arranged marriage, and the workings of banks. The second half is the beginning and during the war.
I was not able to relate to any of the characters. There were a lot of areas were just boring and tedious.  I tried to like or even enjoy the book.  It took me weeks to finally finish this book which is unheard of me.

I'll give it a low 3 stars.

I received this ARC from Penguin Group Putnam through Net Galley for my honest and unbiased honest review. Thank you!
