excellent listening, mediocre story
The setting is France, and the listening was greatly enhanced by the beautiful French accents of the readers of this novel. However, this is a slow-moving story. I love historical fiction, and the older story was much more interesting than the contemporary one. I found myself slogging through those sections and not liking the character nor the reader's petulant-sounding voice. I was impatient for the end, despite interesting plot twists along the way. Chevalier's other novels are far better than this one.

for me this was was hard to put down or turn off as the case may be.
At first I wasn't sure of the connection between Ella Turner and Isabelle du Moulin but the more I listened the more interested I became and the more I wanted to hear. I read 2 books by this author and have REALLY enjoyed both. I would strongly recommend The Virgin Blue and and The Girl With The Pearl Earring. I plan to listen to or read more of Tracy C.
