    1. I enjoyed this book both for the interweaving stories and the atmosphere The war years and the present were meshed together linked by a strong sense of place so that I felt I was there.


    2. Isn t it horrible when you keep a book to one side as a treat and it just isn t There was just nothing I liked about this book, despite giving it 100 pages before giving up The modern story is peopled by universally dislikeable characters the historical story that begins in the early 1930s didn t hook me at all And the style is so pretentious, using words you need a dictionary for and no flow at all Really disappointing and a strong contender for my stinker of the month


    3. The book explores one world in two time frames with a story line tracing France in 1939, and another, tracing France in 2000 The plot is intriguing, exceptionally well written and comes across as interesting at first But the charm ends just there unfortunately the story doesn t flow as easily as I d have liked it to
