Sally Howes You obviously enjoyed it, I think I'll move it a bit higher up my TBR :-)

Christy It's a good book. I was torn between 3 and 4 stars, actually, though, because I had trouble being drawn into it. I decided to round up because it is done really well and raises lots of interesting questions about how much we are really able to understand the past as well as the limitations of historical fiction.

Sally Howes I've heard it's something like a historical novel with frequent factual interjections from the author about the process of researching it, which sounds odd.
