The Virgin Blue
4 journalers for this copy...
Ella, an American, goes to France to find her ancestors. The stories of both Ella and her ancestor are interesting and it's generally well written. Ella however, makes me cringe (mind you I think she's meant to!) and the story sometimes seems contrived. Nevertheless it is very readable and the story is compelling.
Thanks you Random-Poet "reserved" for me. OOOH a treat in store. First some rings & rays but then.... this!
As these parallel tales raced toward their conclusions I was anxious to know were the outcomes going to be as devastating as I feared... It was good to have a well written novel to fix my mind on every now and then as I sat last night with my Dad who lay dying. Thanks so much random-poet, we never could have realised when we exchanged books last October that this book would be such a life saver.

WILD RELEASE NOTES:
my sister who was packing to return to Bishops Stortford. Very timely as she was looking for a good book and was eager to have this.
Well written and researched tales. Thought I would find it more 'meaty' than I did but still a good read taking you along with the stories at a faster pace as it goes through the book.

The 2 stories that crossed paths were very nice! I like how Tracy Chevalier writes her stories.
This one is set in France - I enjoyed having a view on this culture!
The society of our times changed so much; I have the impression that life in older times was much more cruel then today...
A happy ending story - perfect for mu summer holiday!
Thank you Flutterbies for sharing!
