4.0 out of 5 stars A Compelling Story
Tracy Chevalier is one of my favourite authors and she has a way of making history come alive in her novels which have subjects as diverse as Vermeer and fossils. In The Last Runaway she switches her focus to America, in particular 1850s Ohio where the young English Quaker, Honor Bright starts a new life very different to her quiet upbringing in Dorset, England...

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a runaway success
Girl with a Pearl Earring is a hard act to follow and I don't think Tracy Chevalier has ever reached its heights again. I felt the characters came first in that book and the research second. In all her subsequent books, and definitely in this one, it's the other way round. I've read all her novels because I really like the subjects she chooses. I've found them interesting...

2.0 out of 5 stars Not her best, 10 Mar 2014
This review is from: The Last Runaway (Paperback)
Very poor. Not up to her usual standard. Feels as though this is a book written for 16 year olds.
