I am always moved by a true story and this one held my attention from the beginning to the very end. There is a keen-sighted look at the events that are well thought out in two simultaneous stories that go from scene to scene with transparent ease. Jean, Hortense and Jean-Baptiste's personalities really develop over the course of the book and I found I particularly liked Claude who seem to add an interesting dynamic. Overall it is interesting, eerie, touching and worth the time to read!
I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.
