I just got this through my door, and it looks great! I love a bit of history to get my teeth into. Will take it to Center Parcs this weekend for a bit of holiday reading.

A harrowing story but one I enjoyed very much. Particularly liked the level of historic detail which was cleverly woven into the novel such that it did not seem to intrude too much.

The ending seemed quite fantastical but was a nice touch!

I've just raced through this in a week! I'm not usually a huge fan of historical fiction but thought this was tremendous. Very well-written and moving (I blubbed in several places). Good choice

ok so a couple of you did like it at first but since then no-one else did or could muster enough enthusiasm to comment? No-one at all? Has it got lost again? (my last year's disappeared after a few months)....

No. I haven't had it yet, but do check all the threads regularly to see what is coming my way.

At least we know it isn't lost!

Just started and enjoying it. I like books with strong women characters. Will get back to you!

Have finished it now and thoroughly enjoyed it. I hope the author continues to write novels in this style.

One thing - why didn't Anna succumb to the plague? It started from her cottage and she was in contact with lots of the victims. Did she ever mention this herself?

I liked the ending. I like happy endings! And especially when there's a surprise in the last paragraph!

Thanks yogabird smile

I don't know why she stayed healthy - some just did and others not I guess. You look as if you read it quickly - I did too and found myself (usually an early to bed kind of bird) sitting in front of a dying fire sobbing when the son got ill - really sobbing sad I am really gald you enjoyed it.
