I really enjoyed this story of actions and consequences, mystery and revenge. The story of the Rosati family focussed on choices that had to be made in order to survive in horrific and troubling times. The consequences of actions beyond control come back to haunt.
I will be looking into more books by this author.

Vintage Bohjalian: a good story coupled with writing that creates vivid pictures in your mind. It was pretty easy to figure out who the murderer was, though, so the book didn't have the same intensity of most other Bohjalian works I've read.

good narration and the historical parts of the novel were good but the 'mystery' aspect weren't strong
