Quick Review: Cape Cod by William Martin

Since I enjoyed “Harvard Yard” so much by Martin, I read his “Cape Cod” this month (my husband had bought it). Martin’s books are long — this one was over 600 pages — but they don’t disappoint. As in “Harvard Yard”, “Cape Cod” follows an item (in this case a diary from the Mayflower) down through the centuries and follows two families whose histories are linked. There is mystery and history intertwined, along with a few thrills and some human interest stories. I loved it!
I’ll have to give it 4 1/2 stars!

    • Some of my friends have found his books long, too. I think I particularly like them since I live in Massachusetts and LOVE the history here and his books tie in. 🙂 -beth

      • I like the Cape very much. We go there every year. But Martin didn’t continue with the compelling theme he began with. Too rambling, with uninviting modern characters.

Let me know what you think!
