Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Riveting Read! Anita Shreve wrote this book amazingly! Both men and women can enjoy this read; there is excitement, mystery, passion, and suspence. The plot grabs you in the beginning and does let go until the end. The characters are very much real and you almost get to know them and feel what they are feeling. Historical events thread through the book, along with the plot of the actual characters; great for the history buff! I could not put it down, it is one of her best!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful/Excellent This novel was both Absorbing and Suspenseful all in one. I found it impossible not to keep turning the pages to see what would take place next. The ending was a great suprise to me. You will love this novel. Enjoy! I highly recommend this novel and also The Pilot's Wife by Anita Shreve.
