  1. It sounds like a fascinating story, Margaret. I also like that it seems authentic. And I’m not surprised with a sweeping book like this that there are a lot of characters to keep in mind. I’m glad you felt drawn into it.

    1. I wondered if you’d like it as I know you like books set in France. I’d suggest you see if the library has a copy first – it’s a long book!

  2. Kate Mosse is one of the authors I always seem to come close to reading and then never do. I must try something of hers, though I’m not sure this would be the best one to start with. Do you have any recommendations, Margaret?

    1. Sandra, this is only the third book of hers I’ve read. The first one was Labyrinth, which I read before I began my blog and I only noted that I thought it was OK, but too long. It’s a time-slip book – I used to enjoy those, probably more than I do now.

      The next one I read was The Taxidermist’s Daughter, which I read last year – you can see my post here
      https://booksplease.org/2017/09/25/the-taxidermists-daughter-by-kate-mosse/ I gave it 3 stars – I liked it but not all the grisly details about taxidermy and I thought it dragged in the middle.

      As I said to Cathy, have a look at one in the library or a bookshop first to see what you think.
