This review is from: People of the Book (Paperback)This is a good read, that wears it's research very lightly. The world of international book conservation is surprisingly exiting (and interesting). It is well written, far more so than, say, Dan Brown, and you really care about the characters (well, the good ones, anyway). On the strength of this I have read 'March'(good, but not as good) and 'The Year of Wonders'(fab, better, I think). The situations and the historical detail are all credible, and the whole is not over-written or hard to read. Women are central to the whole. Recommended.
