Isabella's story was more interesting than Ella's. It seemed the book was unfinished, and there was no real growth or resolution at the end. Horrible things happened, but how did the women really change?
This book is so very similar to the Labrynth that I read just a bit ago. I swear they were even in the same towns just 500 yrs apart! It makes me wonder if the other author read this book! I was so engrosed in this book I couldnt put it down, but the ending was crappy! I would have liked more closure. warning of domestic violence
I liked it better than Girl with a Pearl Earring. It stradles modern time and the late 1500's in France. It wasn't too heavy on history, but enough to educate you. A quick read.
A story of Ella, a lonely American woman in southwestern France, who connects through her dreams with a distant ancestor, Isabelle. Reading this novel is like being on a "scavenger hunt," as you "hunt" for the common thread that joins these women together in a most mysterious way!
I liked Girl with a Pearl Earring and The Lady and the Unicorn, but not the Virgin Blue. The main character is selfish and juvenile, and I could not sympathize with her at all.
