    Captivating

    Open this book and you're opening a door to the eighteenth century. You'll step into Anoria's world, where the best sculptors breathe life into the marble they carve. Anoria is the daughter of renown Italian sculptor Antonio Lisi. She has been raised amongst the beauty of marble. But she longs to touch the marble with her own hands and create her own beauty, a job that typically belongs to a man. Anoria is a modern day feminist. She knows no boundaries.

    This story has many layers; love and relationships, passion, intrigue, humor, heartache, suspense and mystery. The setting is vivid and I felt as if I was experiencing life in this Italian village. The characters beckoned me into their world with a subtle pull, then held me still as their world became mine.

    Breathing into Stone is not a fast paced adventure. This one is meant to be savored.

    The lightness and delicacy with which this author creates the characters and countryside in this novel makes me want to know the people and places he describes. I feel as though I already know them. The story is believable - almost as if it was a written history of actual events. I made myself late for work because I couldn't put down the book until I had finished the last ten pages. When I was finished reading, I was disappointed. I wanted to know more about the lives of the characters I had come to know.
    I ahve read well over a hundred books on my NOOK, and this is the first that has inspired me to give a rating.
