Gabi Coatsworth I was rooting for Berthe, the eponymous heroine, from the first pages of this book. Highly believable, this well-rounded character, with her self-doubt vying with her self-confidence, took hold of my imagination and wouldn't let go. The fast paced plot had me turning the pages to find out how she made good.I was in 19th century France, enjoying the painlessly delivered background information, and didn't want to come back to 2011. Romance, ambition, tragedy, this book has them all, and the author's sense of humor adds an extra je ne sais quoi.
