  1. I’m intrigued by your review of this book, and I find I tried, at third hand, to read significance into the butterfly – isn’t this what we do sometimes in real life, we try to construct sense/pattern/significance/history out of events or chance remarks?
    I’m looking forward to reading this book.


  2. Thank you for this wonderful review – I deeply appreciate your insights into literary theory and techniques of historical fiction and where this superb novel fits in.

    I am also tickled PINK by the notion that it is ‘As moving as The Nun’s Story’ 🙂
