    Amelia Peabody is my hero I have read everything Elizabeth Peters has written Several times I LOVE the Emersons, and when I manage to remember that they are not real people, I always regret the fact.BUT I found this book dreary and depressing The family seems to be drifting apart the demise of the extended family and everyone is very focused on their own individual needs so they can be fulfilled I reread it twice, hoping I would like it better, but I just never did The author manage Amelia Peabody is my hero I have read every...
