Although I did enjoy this book, I thought the story lagged in the middle. The pace the author set in the beginning didn't keep throughout the book, slowing to almost a standstill as she explores the past while neglecting the present. The ending was surprising, but felt unsatisfying, and I thought the reader was left to believe some things about the main character that seemed unreal after the actions of that character throughout the story. I did enjoy it, and liked the menagerie of characters and bold descriptions of place, but the mystery left me somewhat disappointed.
