This review is from: Bitter Greens (Kindle Edition)
I found this an entrancing story moving from settings and characters which were in the end inevitably entwined. The historical content gives a fascinating insight into the lives of the Sun Kings French court with its excesses and casual cruelty to the lives of Venetians and the extremes of wealth and poverty.
The ending was a little disappointing lacking in the thought which had been given to the rest of this intriguing story. However, this did not detract too much from the enjoyment of the read.
I did not think I would enjoy an adult fairy story but suffice to say I immediately downloaded another story by Kate Forsyth which speaks volumes about how great a read I thought it was!
