Read in October, 2008

Elegant prose, each scene was beautifully written. But plot trods along -- seems more like one big characterization writing prompt instead of an actual story.

**SPOILERS**

Ultimately, the love-at-first sight encounter between the two main characters (that doesn't take place until more than halfway through) is unsatisfying for a book that was marketed as a love story.
