Very good book! I've read through it a few times. The lead character is a winsome child at first, and grows quickly through the challenges she faces. At the time this book is set, the situation would have been a firestorm of scandal, and Anita Shreve paints that fact very well -- her attention to detail, even the tiniest look on the face of someone across the room, does justice to an author's "Show, don't tell" mission. It's a good book to get lost in on a rainy day!
