If you've ever lived in Washington D.C. and felt the political intrigue, then this book is for you. I found it fascinating....the women behind the power in Georgetown. Lots of gossip.

I really like historical novels and I really enjoyed this book. Diana Gabaldon has a way of drawing you into the action, making one really care about the characters and their outcomes. I liked it so much i just ordered the next 6 books in the Outlander series!

Really enjoyed this book...felt like I was actually back in the time of Pilate and Jesus. I liked how the story intertwined their lives, with a twist.

Fascinating book. Well written....a page turner. I knew nothing about the French police, at German Nazi orders, taking away whole French Jewish families for detention and eventual concentration camps. A piece of history the world should know.

Excellent book. Lisa See's prose make the reader feel as if they are in Shanghai. Her understanding of sisters and jealousies is powerful.
