This is a book I love to buy copies of when I find them in used bookshops just to give them away. Her prose is so absolutely stunning (I remember thinking I might become a high school teacher when I was reading it and collecting similes and metaphors to show my students, as they were super-gems of figurative language) and the spinning storylines are excellent. This is one that is high up on my to-re-read list.
This was a sad story but a good story. I really liked the historic story but the current story was too predictable.
