Synopses & Reviews
A reissue of Tracy Chevalier's first novel, which was first published in 1996, and has been out of print for four years. It is the story of two women, born four centuries apart, and the ancestral legacy that binds them, and should do well off the back of the author's more recent successes.
Ella Turner does her best to fit in to the small, close-knit community of Lisle-sur-Tarn. She even changes her name back to Tournier, and knocks the rust off her high school French - in vain. Isolated and lonely, she is drawn to investigate her Tournier ancestry.
