it was ok
Read from February 21 to March 15, 2011

I don't want to completely slate this novel but if I'm being really honest which you should be in reviews it left me cold. I didn't like any of the main characters, Tess was dull, Adam was not someone fanciable in my opinion, Francesca was a bit pointless and as for Peter, I didn't really see the need for him in the book at all. There were also too many villagers and I never felt I 'knew' any of them, I kept forgetting who was who and the worst thing about that was that it didn't seem to matter. It was a very long novel and a lot of it wasn't necessary, particularly all the delving back in time in the last third of the book. It didn't seem to add any value to the story. The story which could have been sweet was strangled by the Latin and ancient history in my opinion.

Emylie I completely agree with you! I don't like to slam a book, but I found myself really having to work to finish it. 400+ pages was a little much for me...especially when there were two chapters that were almost word for word identical. I didn't like the chapter when it was Adam/Tess and I certainly didn't need it the second time with Leonora/Philip.

Vanessa Wester Really? I thought that was quiet clever :)
