Hmmm...


(3 stars)

This is sort of a brief sketch of a story, with long chapters of history, (Marie Antoinette, etc.), in between a very limited plot. If you're looking for a Christmas story, you may be disappointed. I found the long rambling, (though somewhat interesting), interludes of history to be a bit on the dry side, at least for my purpose this time around - that of holiday cheer. I didn't find the summary particularly helpful, as it seemed to promise a charming story, but didn't mention the what filled the majority of the text. That said, the reader did a very good job!
