This was bad. From the vague descriptions of possible reincarnation that went nowhere to weird sex scenes, this was just a strange book. Initially Elza dresses like her dead brother Charles to comfort her mentally troubled mother. Then she dresses like Charles to travel safely, etc until she developes what I guess is a bit of a conflicted identity. That's one storyline. Right off the bat, Elza abandons her children to her cold and politically ambitious husband. That took away any possibility for sympathy for the "heroine". I've tried to find something positive to say..I did like Mechelle, a gallant General of the French Army who becomes an obsession for Elza, but that's it. I only stuck it out and finished the book because I was sure she'd do something climactic with the reincarnation story or whatever she was hinting at. That did not happen.
The narrator was not pleasant to hear. I felt like I was listening to a book club reading.
My recommendation on this one is to save your money.

quirky & wonderful, wish the narrator was European though, her (almost californian) american accent didn't fit the time or story
