Did the plot pull you in or did you feel you had to force yourself to read the book? The plot pulled me in and I could not stop reading. Serafina is an inquisitive character that has you going from one scene to another with more curiosity than when you started.
Did the actions of the characters seem plausible? They were very realistic. I felt transported back to the 1870’s in Italy. I pictured everything so vividly in my mind.
What are some of the book's themes? Murder, betrayal, deceit, lies. They were all important to the storyline and necessary for the characters to progress.
Disclosure: I received a review copy of this book from the author.
