I loved this story. Mosse obviously loves this area of France and she writes about the villages and landscapes very vividly. So much so that I found it difficult to close the book and turn the light off to go to sleep.
The story is set in two time frames - 1891 and 2007 - and while some sort of genealogical link is evident between Meredith Martin and Leonie Vernier from early on in the novel (and the plot moves beautifully between these two protagonists), Mosse creates a gripping and pacy tale as all of the puzzle pieces are finally revealed. It's wonderful stuff.
