Not just the story of opposites attracting, the characters are almost beleivable. He is full of life and energy, she is horribly reserved- to the point of almost having no feelings. Acts of God, earthquakes in this case, move the plot along.

I tried to read this. I really really did. I read for the escape, the story, the brilliance of the insight, the characters- a lot of things this book did not have. I felt like I was reading a coloring book.
I admit to a definite bias: I cannot tolerate the suggestion that the Lord is responsible for everything- while the book's characters aren't.

Kind of poignant retelling of English medieval history with two very funny characters. There's a mystery of star crossed lovers in the past,very blunt religious restrictions and a down right evil antagonist. Very likeable characters.
