Let me start by saying this book was good, not great. I'm not sure if part of my confusion was due to reading an ARC on my ipad. Some of the chapter numbers were sideways, some normal. I was reading into this... trying to decide if this would help me understand who was narrating a particular chapter, or if we were time traveling to the historical part of the book. I never figured this out.

I wasn't emotionally attached to the characters but I can say I enjoyed Eve's story. She becomes obsessed with Rachel, Dom's first wife who he refuses to talk about. I'm pretty sure I would have enjoyed this book more if I read it in a week's time. Give this one 100 pages for the story to develop. The pace picks up and you will enjoy the descriptiveness of France, the house and Eve's emotions.
