I really enjoyed this book. What originally attracted me to it was the suggestion of a mystery, but in the end, there really were no unexpected twists, or mysteries being revealed. What it did have that kept and held my interest was the magical way the story was unfolded and told. I believe I will remember this book for a while. It left you with a good feeling, and makes you wonder what lies in your own personal history or heritage. The characters were really well developed and I really liked the fact that women were portrayed as strong and able to take care of themselves and not helpless creatures and still remain historically accurate for the time period written about. It also did not stray off into other directions which would have distracted from the real story. The author kept the story focused thus making it an enjoyable journey and not a frustrating one going in many different directions. In summary it was an enjoyable, quick and memorable read.

I thought this book was good but the characterizations were not well enough developed. That was disappointing.

Good choice for book club, also for teen girls. Women's role in society has changed so much in a short time.
