review 1: Although well written this book is so dull it was painful. Emylia Hall fell into the trap of though herself deeply in love with the subject she was writing about(Hungary)which was so evident it made me cringe, her obvious passion was certainly not shared by myself. Ironically, I thought the best parts of the book were the scenes in England. Obviously a talented passionate writer with a bit of a duff story.
review 2: I really enjoyed this story of Beth also known as Erzie. The story is told in a series of flashbacks that begin when her father brings her a package that has arrived from Hungary addressed to Beth in her Hungarian name. The unopened package causes an explosive reaction in Beth and begins a mystery that will slowly unravel as the reader is drawn i
... morento the story. The location of Beth's flashback's switch dramatically from staid proper England to sultry colorful Hungary. For six summers, Beth travels to Hungary to visit her flamboyant mother, Marita. She becomes entranced with the exuberant lifestyle, the heat, the spicy food, Zoltan, her mother's artist lover and the young man next door. The author does a wonderful job describing the Hungarian countryside and contrasting it with Devon England where Beth lives. When we meet Beth, she is thirty years old and has not been back to Hungary since she was sixteen. The opening of the package brings back a flood of memories and an answer to the mystery of why she had stayed away so long. I look forward to more books from this author. less
