I Also Recommend:
I picked up and put this book back down years ago because it didn't interest me. I recently picked it up again and enjoyed it. It has some slow parts and others that happen too fast but the book is not long itself. Orpheilia is a young girl who wan't to star in a traveling show, sining dancing and playing music. She is the blacksheep of the family and feels no one understands her dreams howevr she will go to extraodinary measured to chase them.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I really liked Orphelia as a character and Othello but that was about it. Everyone else was either okay or I hated them. The mother for example didn't seem protective but insane to me. However it is a good read.

Is it a Mystery Book?
This is as good as Shadows in the glasshouse. I loved the daring character, Orphelia. She reminded me alot of myself. This book was sort of a mystery. The first one was Orphelia was tyring to let her mother play the music she loved. The author though kind of squeezed in the part about Reubun. At first he was no big deal. Then in towards the end of the book he became a big deal. If I hadn't known it was supposed to be a mystery book I would have thought it was just aa historical fiction book. This is why I only it 4 stars. It is very well written.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
