This review is from: The Lantern (Paperback)
This book was a revelation to me. Beautifully evokative - the language is so rich the reader can almost see and smell the sights and perfumes described. The book appeals to all of the senses, and whilst the story is gently told it is no less enthralling for all that. I read it on holiday and as I finished the last page I had that wonderful sense of disappointment one experiences when the story is so captivating you just don't want it to end.
