The author brings a sense of history to this rich novel. Although at times the story was slow to develop, it was compensated by the warmth and truth of the characters. Simon Vance is a master narrator, and gave the protagonist a wisdom and sense of humor that was completely endearing. This was one of the first audio books I listened to, and it moved me. The expulsion from their home, being forced to flee and relocate in a completely foreign culture, and the internal changes neccessary to survive the trauma were captivating. Magic was scarce yet mysticism and spirituality abounded. I was sad when the story ended. I wanted to continue being a voyeur, watching the lives of the characters. Rarely has a novel captivated me in this way.

Exciting and Lyrical
I would add my voice to the first review and agree with everything that was written. It is an exciting book, and you are drawn into all the characters' lives. The characters do not change any history, they merely live in it, painting a picture of living at the time of great events. For most of the book they are living at the far edge of these events. I loved it.
