Lovely descriptions, well developed characters, entertaining of plots and sub plots worked well! I enjoyed it all.
Most of the book was really enticing, but the combination of the first narrator’s voice and a drawn out description made the first part difficult for us to stay awake during.
I had a hard time getting into this one. I found the first narrator distracting. I am glad I stuck with it - good story and characters.
Wonderfully told story. Enjoyed Hoffman's characters and was engrossed from the start
It took me quite a while to get interested in the story, though there were great parts here and there. For me the main problem was the initial reader -- I really disliked her style: she seemed too phony, stylized, stilted, and pompous. Sorry Tina, but I really did not like your work on this one. I've never read Alice Hoffman and not sure I ever will based on this. The other two narrators were fine.
Got a little tedious Interesting historical topic. Enjoyed most of it
Beautifully written and narrated. I loved this book and would recommend it to lovers of Alice Hoffman it is one of her best!!
