review 1: A well-researched historical novel and an accurate description of Jewish (and converso/anusim) life in the Iberian Peninsula in the 15th century. In the notes at the end of the book the author states that there is no history written about females during that time therefore the f...

review 1: I didn't enjoy this one so much. I was really into the idea of it, especially as I was finding a hard time finding many novels set to read and I was drawn to the emphasis on female characters. However, I found the protagonist, Xanthe, lacking in substance - it seems tome that her...

review 1: I really liked this book, particularly the description of French life in the mid-1700s. I enjoyed the characters very much. Some were fictional and some were not, but, the details of life at that time seem very accurate and that makes even the fiction seem real. This is a bit...

review 1: I not only enjoyed this novel, but like all good historicals, I learned a lot about a time and place that I knew nothing about. I read this book because my father, gone now for 5 years, loved Vivaldi's "The Four Seasons" and the music was part of my childhood background. But I fo...

review 1: I rescued this book from the trash when I was assessing the collection at my library. Hadn't gone out in a couple of years, but had been part of that big popular boom in biographical novels a couple years back. The idea that this novel focused on the life of Antonio Vivaldi cau...

review 1: I loved this book, it was so interesting and it takes you right from your couch and transports you to Venice. There was so much about the culture during the time that I did not know and it was weaved into this story beautifully and tastefully. A lot of historical fiction works ...
