really liked it

I am rating this book based on how I felt at the end, not how I was feeling during the first half! To be honest I started reading and was instantly intrigued by the situation with three year old Lily. Then we switched to the past and Lorenzo's story and my interest quickly flagged. Maybe the contrast was too great, maybe here was too little tying the two stories together. I found it easy to put the book down and do other things.
Thankfully I picked it up again later and persisted because once Julia takes off to Venice things hot up and both stories race to a conclusion. I notice some reviewers were dissatisfied with the ending. I liked it and felt it was quite appropriate for the type of book this is. So an overall four stars with the last half totally redeeming any lack in the first:)
