This was fantastic book, heart wrenching but wonderful. My mother was from Latvia and had to leave her home when she was eight years old with her mother and they fled to Germany, her father was taken by the Russians to Siberia and never seen again. My mother came to America after marrying my father who was in the American infantry.We are definitely a giant melting pot of rich history and unfortunately heart breaking stories!
wonderful storyteller. This is the last book in the series and I didn't want it to end. I never use to read fantasy but thanks to paperback swap I'm hooked. There are some great authors out there and Juliet Marillier is definitely one of the best in fantasy!
I've had this book for awhile and finally read it. I loved it,she really researched the book and brought the story to life. I was pleasantly surprised when I got to the end of the book and found out the author was a local professor at Cal Poly University.
this book was amazing, I couldn't put in down. The author did a great job separating cultures and races and letting the characters show you with their hearts the differences our backgrounds contribute to our lives along with a few turns of fate. The book was slow to take off but don't let that discourage you because this book is a definite read! Excellent!
I love this book. I've read the Distant Hours and have another one of her books on my wish list. Can't wait .Kate Morton has a way to pull you in and then just when you think you have it all worked out she puts another twist here and turn there. I really loved it!I could hardly put in down,Great read!
Great book will definitely be reading more by this author.I was swept in to the wonderful history and strength of the Irish people. I'm not sure if there is a sequel but I hope so, I will being looking into it.
I've had this book on my shelf for awhile now,and only wished I had read it sooner,I loved it. Beautifully written and full of twist and turns. I learned a lot about Ireland and the bogs which I didn't know. The book kept my interest from start to finish.I will definitely read more by this author. Great book!
