It was a beautiful piece of literary fiction. The book had it all: Engrossing storyline with a bit of mystery; enchanting settings; well-developed; mature and real characters. And to top it all off, a charming love story. This is one book that I will remember for a long time. It would make a very compelling movie.
I gave it 4 stars, a high rating for me, would have been 4 1/2 if halves were available on Amazon and Goodreads.
