Falling Angelsby Tracy Chevalier
Synopses & Reviews
Time magazine crowned Girl With a Pearl Earring "a portrait of radiance...a jewel." In her New York Times bestselling follow-up, Tracy Chevalier once again paints a distant age with a rich and provocative palette of characters. Told through a variety of shifting perspectives—wives and husbands, friends and lovers, masters and their servants, and a gravedigger's son—Falling Angels follows the fortunes of two families in the emerging years of the twentieth century. Graced with the luminous imagery that distinguished Girl With a Pearl Earring, Falling Angels is another dazzling tour de force from this "master of voices" (The New York Times Book Review).
A Book Sense 76 pick.
"While Chevalier again proves adept at evoking a historical era...she has devised a plot whose contrivances stretch credibility....While not as accomplished a work as Girl, the ironies inherent in the dramatic unfolding of two families' lives ultimately endow this novel with an impressive moral vision." Publishers Weekly
"[A] novel so familiar...that the hyperverisimilitude of its period-color seems almost done by number....Chevalier offers pleasures enough, indeed, though on an outing taken countless times before." Kirkus Reviews
