NOT sci-fi or fantasy. Blurred historical fiction. Kind of a Jane Austin meets Fyodor Dostoyevsky - but a lighter read than either.

An absorbing tale about freedom and personal choices, written with Le Guin's usual beautiful prose and perceptive characterization. A portrayal of post-Napoleonic Europe and the revolutionary stirrings of the 1820s and 1830s--a good history lesson even though the country of Orsinia never existed.
