Rich, gorgeous and brutal
on 30 May 2014
One of the things I liked this most for was the lack of tied up endings - so many things happened and were not explained, so many secrets not told. I don't know whether this was deliberate, a sequel being anticipated (which would be eagerly read) but I think not; it's just the way things are.
The opening was historical and lush, rich, gorgeous and brutal. The rest described places, a way of life and a background of cello-playing which I am unfamiliar with.
The whole told of a woman I couldn't help but wish to know more about; her relationship with her mother and those about her compelling.
