This is an extraordinary book, beautifully written and well-researched. Although it centres on two female characters connecting over centuries, it is not just a book for women. There are several interesting men in the story who are necessary to the forward momentum of an intriguing plot.
As one of the best books I've read in the past six months, I recommend it to anyone who enjoys historical fiction and has read and enjoyed books by Hilary Mantel or A.S. Byatt.
