Brilliant read, 16 May 2012
I completely agree with the other reviews. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and it was EXTREMELY hard to put down. The story immediately draws you in and keeps you enthralled right to the end. Part mystery, part romance, part historical saga, it is haunting, tense and beautifully written. The author has a real talent for storytelling and shows great insight into the human condition - both its frailties and strengths - through the development of her memorable characters over several decades. An intelligent and absorbing read. Buy it!
