I admire other works by this author This her first novel is unusual in having a distinct historical setting Paris during the French Revolution I think she is better with later periods including contemporaryMy enjoyment also diminished by the ebook formatting Chapter breaks not coded for navigation just three sections of 100 pages each The text was garbled on every page Too garbled for it to be the result of scanning alone Fortunately a book meant for easy reading can take some garbled text although it is always nicer with the minimum
