A bit too much detail about things at times I, personally, wasn t interested in the history of things The story was a bit long winded but I thought the ending was brilliant Horrible old hag thought she was going to win by drowning herself but the powers that be soon sorted that out I don t think she will be joining her husband and son up stairs.
