Smith, Sherwood -- Treason's Shore

Conclusion of an epic fantasy quadrilogy which deserves to become a standard-bearer of the genre. (Only the genre has become so enormous that it's hard for anybody to make a dent.) It's about people growing up, people's families, politics, battles, a war, and lurking horrors from the depths of time. It has many, many points of view -- and I mean that at both the personal, generational, and cultural levels. (And we get just enough of a view of the lurking horrors to realize that they have a point of view, which I love.)

And it's mostly full of people who, when they have terrible life-strangling romantic problems, sit down and talk sensibly about them. Eventually. Mostly. I admit that this book has an undue number of people who refuse to write to each other even when they're on unlimited texting plans.
