One thought on “A Million Tears

  1. Molly Mcelroy

    A Million Tears is the first in a series of four It chronicles multiple generations of a family whose roots are set in Wales, in the late 1800 s Volume 1 alone, brought adventure,tragedy and hope Henke takes you from a Welsh mining town to America, and on to Barbados He brings you through suicide,love and the high seas I found myself torn between not wanting to finish it and wanting to hurry on to volume 2, The Tears of War and Peace, which I will begin today.The range of events is mind boggling [...]

  2. Bob Caroti

    Reading on my Kindle Fire these days picked this up on and was immediately hooked with the story of Welsh miners, their struggles to survive by stength of family and the events that prompted them to emigrate to the United States It s a long read but well worth every moment as the family strives to make their fortune in the U.S and the story is told from the viewpoints of the different famly members at different periods of time This gets a 4 rating from me and I ll be moving on to the next volum [...]

  3. Steve

    Sometimes historical novels are so deeply rooted in past events that they don t have deep plots of their own This is a fine story that shines on its own.

  4. Kathleen F

    My Dad suggested I read this book I think he liked it because it is one of those sweeping epics about immigrants coming to America and doing amazing things In this case, it s a small Welsh mining family who leave their village because of a terrible sludge accident quite reminiscent of Aberfan in the 60s What starts as a sweet, How Green Was My Valley tale then takes on the almost unbelievable proportions of the epic expansion of America in the late 19th early 20th century I was left scratching m [...]

  5. Patricia Ibarra

    A public saga of three generations of the Griffiths family, starting with the grandfather who works in the mines in Wales His son, Evan, followed his steps He married Meg and had three children Even is devoted to his family and we learn of the dire conditions miners lived at the end of the nineteenth century and how difficult it is for them to survive They have to endure poverty, hunger, unfairness and a bleak future When things could not be worse, a terrible accident occurs, and Evan finally de [...]

  6. Lessil Richards

    Great book Spans a very important time period starting in Wales and an incredible look into the hard life of the miners It follows one family that emigrates to the US and through good luck and intellect do very well Their two sons have grand adventures, one in the West with renegade Indians and the other South on a sailing adventure The author has a great ability to tie in a wide girth of knowledge from industrialization at the turn of the century to nautical information and engineering It is a [...]

  7. Martha

    I like multi generational family sagas, but this one could have been edited shorter It starts out with an old, wealthy man who s ready to tell his story before he dies and he appoints a journalist to the job The beginning drags on a bit, but when they get to America after only three months all of a sudden they re wealthy That s a bit much However, the characters are strong and persevering, of good morale fiber What made this country great emigrants who bettered themselves thru hard work and good [...]

  8. Chris Bullock

    An interesting saga seen through the eyes of different members of the family, starting in Wales and resulting in a move to America Full of drama, pathos and adventure Written with considerable skill and detail and keeps you guessing right up to the end I feel the return to the reporter at the end was a bit abrupt and perhaps could have been extended, but nonetheless a complete and enjoyable read.

  9. Toni

    This boof was so beautiful and also so sad with lots of family relationship issues The start is heart rending and not predicted Also into the book, some of the scenes described almost smack you in the face they are so realistic and terrifying But tit is also inspirnig and the family links are so vedry strong It was especially a good book too having me thte author what talent very well done.

  10. Barbara West

    The promise and possibilities of immigrating to AmericaAnticipating the wonderful possibilities of the American Dream , this Welsh family works hard and comes to the successful realization of all America had to occur Exciting adventures, hardships and heartache keep the reader riveted to this work.

  11. Sheryl

    This book started out very interesting It is about a Welsh family and the struggles they had working in the mines and escaping to America It also gives you a realistic view of what it was like to live here as immigrants That said it became a Saga and was too long for me When I finally finished I found out there are several books in thus series.

  12. Judi

    What a gripping book about a family in Europe in a tiny coal mining town where a good portion of the children are killed when the mine releases slag after a hard rain It completely covered the school The hardships they suffer are so realistic, Paul Henke is going to be one of my favorite authors.

  13. Lance Greenfield

    This is an epic story and is well worth reading.What was very exciting for me was that I was browsing the book at Edinburgh airport, an dhe told me about how he had written the story to while away his off duty hours whilst working on Nigerian oil rigs many years before.He kindly signed the copy that I bought I have just given it away to a charity auction.

  14. Kelly Tennant

    The beginning of this book is just brilliant I became so emotional invested in the characters I think I really did shed a million tears I enjoyed the story being told from different family members perspectives However for me it was just a little too long I found my mind wandering from the story Not so much a criticism of the book per se just it wasn t really matched to me.

  15. Lizzy

    This is a long book and the story is great The author, however, sometimes gets caught up in details and that slows it down in places I scanned some of these places because I didn t want to get bogged down and I wanted to finish the story Don t let the wordiness keep you from reading it Just scan carefully The story is really good

  16. May

    This was a delightful surprise I do not remember when or why I downloaded this book, but I found it on my Kindle when I was traveling and needed a new book.I truly enjoyed the historical context as the background for the story I also appreciated how each character s chapter moved the Family saga forward Some of it was a little far fetched, but it was a fun read none the less.

  17. Ania

    I enjoyed it as much as I enjoyed books of Robert Louis Stevenson when I was a kid It was really entertaining I started it on weekend and was almost done had to finish when my kids were in beds during the week just couldn t wait.

  18. Debra

    The family in this book goes through many tragedies and adventures throughout their lives both in Wales and when they immigrate to the United States For the most part, this book is well written and keot my interest in finding out what was going to happen next.

  19. Linda

    An enjoyable read overall Good story line of a 19th century Welsh mining family making it in America which unfortunately became too drawn out and detailed towards the end The ending was rushed and contrived merely requiring you to read the next book in the series.

  20. Socorro

    This is the first of a four book series I enjoyed the historical events of the 1800s until the end of the Second World War in the last book if the series Read them all and enjoyed the strong female characters This first book was my favorite of the four.

  21. Amy

    Very good story but I felt like it was a little long and drawn out in parts By the end I was anxious for it to finish.

  22. Kelly Lewis

    So much dramaAny thing that could go wrong did go wrong in this beast of a book From strikes, murder, and ships that sink It s still a good book.

  23. Kathy Crenshaw

    Great story Aptly named because there were parts I cried a million tears Highly recommend for anyone seeking adventure, romance and a history lesson too.

  24. Ena

    Loved it, loved it, loved it It is full of emotions, it makes you laugh, it makes you cry It draws you in and keeps you there to the very very end.
