    LOVE this author!

    Can always count on her to give you an enjoyable tale full of interesting connections and insights into her characters. You never want to leave them. Wraps up a neat package and ties a bow at the top at the end. This book doesn't disapoint.

    Interesting

    I confess that I felt like I was wading in mud up to my knees for the first half of this book, but I am so glad that I stuck with it. It is such an interesting insight into people. I don't quite have words to define the insight. I just know that I really enjoy the book.

    a good beach read

    This is the first Joanne Harris book that I¿ve read, and, aside from the difficulty of keeping track of French character names, it was an easy, enjoyable read. There are many family themes at work here--inter-family feuds, intra-family estrangements, skeletons in the closet. The book is also about coming home, re-establishing a sense of belonging, and the evolution of a community. Mado, the main character and narrator, is likeable, and it¿s easy to relate to her initial frustration with the villagers' pessimism that stymies any motivation to work together for positive change. A lot of loose ends are left unaddressed, though, and I had the feeling that they were forgotten or ignored, rather than intentionally left to the reader's imagination.
