I loved this book. I found it intriguing and nearly impossible to out down. From clairvoyant Clara to the immortally beautiful Rosa to loving, forgiving Alba, these women have left a mark on my life. Fictional or not, their actions will affect my own. This story was beautifully written....you feel as if you are actually there, observing these events.
