The Diamond Waterfall (by Pamela Haines)

'The Diamond Waterfall' is a historical saga by Pamela Haines.

This is a long novel covering three generations, with a necklace (known as the Waterfall) playing a part, although not as major one as  would have expected, given the book's title.

There were some unpleasant scenes, and rather too many characters for easy light reading. It was made further confusing by a muddled style of writing with unfinished sentences.

There's an unlikely but reasonably happy ending. However, although I finished it I wouldn't really recommend it.

Totally disagree. I loved this book, evocative, compelling, rounded characters, enjoyed the story from beginning to end.
