I liked this, but I don't know if I would recommend it, if that makes any sense at all! :) This was a random pick-up at the library, and for that it ended up being quite good. The story is beautifully written, and the characters are deep, interesting, and well-developed. It is a contemporary story intertwined with historical fiction, and the author does a great job of weaving the stories together. But... I can't quite figure out what exactly he was trying to say about love, marriage, religion, and life, all the themes that were heavily explored. I think it is because my beliefs about those things, and the purpose of those things, are so concrete, that I couldn't quite roll with his thought process.

I guess what I am trying to say is that I was captivated by the story, but when all is said and done I don't feel great about the feelings it leaves you with about marriage, religion, beliefs and faith.
