I appreciate this book which alternates the natural scenes with Jill and the epoch scene with Kate. We are plunged in this novel and taken by the story of these two women who live to the different epochs but that all gathering.
An anguishing atmosphere adding the spicy side to the story and we can imagine the Kate’s fate and the intentions of Alex to the end of roman. Very passionately, it is easy to read in despite of 570 pages. A novel which gathering a psychological mystery and the relationship also complicated than fascinating between the characters.
I have read one other novel of same author but this one is very interesting. I read this book twice time in some years. But I have met the same pleasure.
