I particularly enjoyed the parts of the story in Spain and South America. I was totally lost in the tale, which is rich in detail about the way of life in the convents. In Spain we see them carrying on with their work with the ever present fear of the Inquisition. In South America we see them landing in a strange country, settling down amongst the native Incas and forging a place for themselves and their faith alongside the Inca priests.
I also enjoyed the individual stories of the girls - their backgrounds and how they came to arrive at the convent and what happened to them. Not all of them took Orders and some indeed went on to marry and have families of their own. There are a number of these background stories about the girls, which are all really good, fascinating reads but it could get a bit confusing at times trying to remember what had happened to each girl.
I was not quite so taken with the part of the story set in the present day and Menina. I just didn't quite warm to her, mainly because she just seemed to be "too good to be true". She was supposedly extremely intelligent, but even though the connections between her and the nuns in the story were staring her in the face, she seemed to take an age to start putting two and two together.Read more ›
Why has Salome got any special powers? Unlike her half brother she is the child of 2 normal, ordinary humans.
At the start of the book it explains that you need the medal to translate the chronicle, yet when Menina translates it she uses only a Latin phrasebook and her own knowledge of Spanish.
What has the painter got to do with anything?
Antiques change hands all the time, so why does Menina assume that 16th century Salome is her ancestor? We don't know what happened to the medal between the 16th and 21st centuries.
Why did the 2 people following her just stop?
Her ex pursued her to Spain, then stopped. Why? Did the author forget about him?
If wanting to hide the chronicle and it's contents, why commission paintings showing the stories in the chronicle?
This book didn't make much sense.
This is badly thought out and reads like it was written in a bit of a hurry to meet deadlines.
