rating: 5 of 5 stars
Anderson is one of my favorite writers and for good reason. Once again she renders a beautifully told story that kept me on the edge of my seat. Isabel is a compelling voice - and not only because she struggles so mightily, but also because she has such clear flaws, and these are a result of both her circumstance and her character. And Anderson knows how to write historical fiction, with all the necessary details and language nuances. Brilliant.
