really liked it
bookshelves: adult-fiction
Read in January, 2006

The language as it regards to color and art rivets me in place. This is one of my favorite authors & favorite books. Again, I like the time period, the art, the earthenware that the family designs. The movie is not so good for me, even though I'm a huge fan of Collin Firth & Scarlet Johansen too. The movie moves quickly and the book is slow and luscious. I love, love, love the mystery around her not being able to show her hair.
