it was amazing

The way the author goes inside the mind of a little girl is impressive. I could feel her emotions and yet remain an outside observer. The way the author weaves the language is poetic without being stuffy. Beautiful, beautiful language! I love historical fiction when it makes an era alive for you, and this book certainly did that - presenting the high and mighty along with ordinary people so that together they made you see into the times that have passed. The description of the physical surroundings only added to the poetry of this book. And the end result was quite surprising, yet I understood the motivations of the little Eleonora Cohen so well.

Thank you for writing this beautiful story - this will be one of those books I will be reading again and again. Bravo!
