review 1: A postscript to a Puccini opera and a sprawling novel travelling through many historic events. "So what did happen to the boy?" is an interesting question and there is a lot of area covered by the novel. Perhaps a bit too much for me to keep up with the whole time.

review 2: I won this book in a giveaway, and to be honest, was curious about it after reading the synopsis, but unsure as to whether or not I'd like it.

Interesting but somewhat disjointed story. Not at all what I expected.
It rambles on and on until I could stand it no more and gave up.
Enjoyed the characters and their storyline but not my favorite.
Ambitious....didn't quite make the shot.
