No Moment of Pure Sublimity

I REALLY wanted to love this novel. I really enjoy the style/detail/passion of Ms. Chevalier's writing. This book was just alright. There was no one event that culminates in a moment of pure sublimity that takes your breath away like Girl with a Pearl Earring, The Lady and the Unicorn or Fallen Angels. One IS still able to escape into the novel...but really has nothing to do when one gets there. The reader. VERY good.
