Summary of the Book:
Henning Dietzel’s attempt to rebuild his businesses-destroyed by a massive tidal wave-is complicated by a desire to also enjoy a satisfying personal life. Quick to recognize opportunity, he amasses an agricultural empire the size of a small country. But his fortunes rise and fall during three disastrous wars followed by struggles with an unscrupulous competitor, a crooked judge, and a slave trader.All the while he doggedly courts Martine Prado, a feisty, beautiful, seemingly unattainable Peruvian aristocrat whose liberation is a century ahead of its time. Henning accepts her proposal of a mutually advantageous marriage, which combines their haciendas. Rocky at first, the relationship improves until an astonishing, out-of-nowhere answer to Henning’s prayers threatens to destroy it.
My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. This is not the first book that I have read by Verne R. Albright. I actually read the prequel to this called Playing Chess with God. He does have a pulling us into the world of the characters who’s tale we are following. Henning is over the top complex character with all the real life struggles of the average person and that is what makes going on the ups and downs of his life easily to follow. This gives a glimpse into one man’s life in business, loss, love, and how fragile having all of that can be. That is what keeps me thinking about the book long after the last page is turned.
My Rating of the Book: 4 1/2 Stars
