The Inheritance of Solomon Farthing, by Mary Paulson-Ellis

I bought a signed first edition. This book seemed promising.

It did not live up to that promise.

The story somehow links a group of British soldiers in the very last days of the First World War and events a century later. But it never really grabbed or held my attention, and I didn’t really understand the point. And I totally missed the significance of the pawn ticket, that I think was intended as a thread linking various parts of the story.

So, I found it disappointing. 4 out of 10.
