Book Review: The Virgin Blue

A wonderful story about self discovery. We are all products of the people who came before us and this book reminded me that I feel that the collective dreams and aspirations, as well as fears and disappointments are handed down through the generations. Ella is rudderless and can't seem to find happiness, though she seemly has everything in the world. A great dissatisfaction pervades everything in her life. Though dreams, she reconnects to an ancestor who faced the same discontentment and goes on search to discover not only a family secret, but herself as well. Chevalier explains the panic and persecution of the religious wars and I walked away understanding much more of French history than before. Excellent read.

Happy Reading!
