What did I just read I don t even know where to start with this The story itself didn t seem to have any clear direction It really doesn t follow enough generations or seem epic enough to be a multi generational narrative but it also doesn t really focus on one generation enough to be just about them either The history seems a little weird especially the deal with the American living in Arkansas who insists on holding onto the title of a British aristocrat I m no expert but I m pretty sure that s not how that works Not to mention view spoilerthe fact that he passes the title onto his mixed race son who is never formally acknowledged as being his biological child even then Oh he just really admired his servant s loyalty so he passed the title of Duke onto him plus a third of all his holdings Obviously it isn t because that s his illegitimate son or anything Like they genuinely still tried to cover up that he had two sons with his black servant after his death even though he left them each a third of his property and passed his title onto one of them No That s beyond ridiculous hide spoiler
