    "Not very good or interesting"

    If you've read Vanora Bennett"s "Figures In Silk" and think this book is a sequel/prequel or companion work done by a different writer, you will be very disappointed. Although I was not overwhelmed by Bennett's lusty men and low self-esteem female characters, at least they were richly drawn. And we got rare insight into silk-making from worm to fabric and we learned about the lifestyles of the people of that age. In Chaikiin's book, I couldn't figure out what or who it was about! Her Catherine of Medici was pale compared to any other account that I've ever read. The story had no local color - it could have taken place in France, England, Tahiti or downtown Baltimore. The only reference to "silk" was the occasional commission by a royal for a dress. The two main characters are supposed to be "so much in love" but all we read about is chaste kisses and sex between them is referred to as "the next morning" - no heaving bosoms, taut britches, tangled bedsheets, or afterglow. Rachelle and Fabian, the heroine and hero, suddenly expect a child but we sure don't know how it happened! Since Chaikiin spends more time trying to push religion down the reader's throats with no real justification, maybe the pregnancy was another "immaculate conception". She skirts around heretics and reformists and Calvinists and Martin Lutherists but never gives us any substantive information on the religious issues and fears of the time. In fact, we don't even get a good idea WHEN this story takes place except for references to Catherine de Medici, Elizabeth I, Mary Queen of Scots, Jeanne of Navarre, etc., but no solid character development on anyone. If you must, read this first THEN go to Bennett's book. NOTE: Chaikiin's "Threads of Silk" and "Daughter of Silk" are the same story, one is just a few dollars less. Pass on both and save your money!
