  1. I enjoyed your review and look forward to reading this one. I love historical fiction and this has been on my TBR pile for a few weeks now, but I might need to shuffle it up the list after reading your review.

    • Let me try this again. I mean to say that “Serena I think your blog is fabulous” and all the rest. Forgive my blooper; after a long day of teaching high school I was determined to complete my task! And that was after having gone to do my taxes after school (ouch!). Maybe I should have waited until I was more rested, but I still want to give this site the awards, if you want to play. Best regards.

  5. This sounds like a remarkable book and one I would probably like. It reminds me a bit of a book I reviewed back in January–in terms of the constant watchfulness of neighbors on neighbors. Thank you for your great review, Serena.

  6. what a beautiful review–and a gorgeous book cover!

    i haven’t heard of this author or the novel but am intrigued by your review and synopsis. i can’t fathom living in such difficult times as the ones you described. i can’t imagine the scrutiny that auda must face and look forward to picking this one up. thanks!

  7. Oh, I’m so glad you liked it! I think it sounds like a great book! I can’t imagine living in a time when you had to watch everything you did for fear of being accused of something. That must have been difficult, at best!

    Love your review!
