Review: A Time of Angels by Patricia Schonstein

I just finished reading A Time of Angels by Patricia Schonstein, and what a disappointment it was! This story was supposed to be based around two characters:

Primo, a soothsayer and magician raised on a rich diet of astronomy, philosophy and storytelling. 

Pasquale, an exquisite Italian chef, making fruited breads and salamis. He owns a bar and delicatessen. Both characters are Italian, but moved to Capetown, South Africa, after the Holocaust. Disjointed chapters, and far too many main characters thoroughly spoiled what could have been a nice little novel.

Not recommended.

My rating = *
