review 1: This beautifully written story takes place in 1950s Yugoslavia. The tale begins very slowly, but the plot soon begins to unfold as more and more detail emerges. The pace of the story is slower than I would normally like, but not so much as to be distracting. I enjoyed reading this historical novel about a part of the world and time period I have no experience with. The novel is rich with imagery and nuanced characters, and filled with metaphor (perhaps at times too much). The plot is well developed, and full of suspicion, suspense, betrayal, family tragedy and mystery. This is the second book I have read by this Canadian author. Both are good stories, well told.
review 2: Although we are told not to judge a book by it's cover, it is hard not to as it is so beau
... moretiful. From the first page the reader is drawn into a compelling story told in beautiful language, richly drawn, imperfect characters and original similes and metaphors that make you stop and re-read. Nicole has written a book that made me want to rush home and read and had me researching the history of Yugoslavia and connecting me to my Hungarian uncle. The story and characters will stay with you long after you have finished the last page. less

Beautifully written story dealing with post WWII. More complete review to come.
We have been given very strong characters once again. A very good read.
The story was very interesting and there were great descriptions.
Nothing is what it seems, especially if it seems like nothing
Intense! Intense! INTENSE! I could not put it down.
