"This beautiful, haunting story of love and redemption rings with the resonance of a legend." (Booklist)
Definitely in the top half
Lucy is certainly the most interesting.
Not surprisingly, the most enjoyable scene was when Lucy and her young man learned to love one another.
The dedicated maid Bridget
The story is thought provoking and poignant, and certainly follows a most original plot line.
