's review

it was ok
bookshelves: bookcrossing, historic, read-in-2007

This thriller wasn't really thrilling. The only thing that made me keep reading was that I wanted to know if Juliette will be reunited with her daughter Fleur in the end. Although I'm not a mother yet I can understand her loss. In the second part the story condensed and quickened, and therefore became a bit more interesting.
I didn't like the very ending, though. Cannot understand Juliettes decision on the last page.

I must admit that I don't like historic novles much in general, and it's quite coincidence that now I read two (also read Pompeii) in one month, AND both are by authors named Harris. I liked "Pompeii" better, and I even more liked Chocolat by Joanne Harris - probably because of the topic. I have several other books by Joanne Harris and will definitely give them a chance, too.
