    One thought on “No Love Lost”

    1. I was pretty disapointed in this book. While it was fun to read in the begining(kind of a mix between historical and comt. starts in the '30's and ends in the '70's)it quickly whent down hill. There seemed to be no likeable characters except for Lindsy's (the h) mother and grandmother. Lindsey's father was a serial cheater and her mother new about all of the other women.

    2. I haven't read a family saga type book in years, and I'm glad this was from the free cart at the Timberland Regional Library. The pages turned, yes, but what insufferable writing and ridiculous characters And unless your name is Margaret Mitchell or Kathleen Windsor, you'd best avoid that type of ending. I don't remember disliking Susan Howatch, so I am tempted to go re-read some of her stuff just to see if all such novels are this dreadful.

    3. NO LOVE LOSTVery good book, I enjoyed it the first time I read it and loved rereading it 30 years later. It spans 1930-1970's and describes that timeframe in a very accurate way.
