Consequences is a story that spans across three generations of women in one English family. The story begins with the meeting of Matt and Lorna on a park bench. They have a whirl wind romance and are quickly married. It was this first couple that I enjoyed reading about the most....later in the story it is fun to see how each of the other two generations connect back to this first couple. The story was like reading an old family history. I did find it enjoyable and the first couple, Matt and Lorna, will probably remain in my memory, but the others seemed to be more than a bit forgettable.
