Received a free reading copy from net galley - thank you.

I have always loved Alice Hoffman's lyrical style, but I don't always love her story lines.

This one kept me glued to the page throughout. I loved the idea of the St. Thomas island settings, the history, the characters and the complicated relationships. I was also fascinated by the way women were treated even under Danish law and also Jewish law, what they could and could not do and how little rights they had a mere 150 years ago or so.

Good story. Rambled on too long but did hold my attention. I always like the unusual history of the Jewish story, this one in the Caribbean.
