    eBook The Virgin Blue PDF Þ The Virgin Epub / Õ cloudunblock.co Õ virgin free, blue download, The Virgin book, The Virgin Blue KindleSo this book started off strong very strong The story of the 1500 Isabelle was very interesting although could have been developed a little I think I actually had a hard time putting the book down in the first three uarters or However by the end I was pretty much tired of it Tired because it was so odd and unbelievable and I'd really stopped caring for Ella the modern day main characterI loved the idea of what was happening the same land same family a modern day version of the character trying to solve a puzzle or a mystery of what had happened to her long ago counterpart But there were parts of it that added nothing to the story and made the characters less likeableI liked Ella a lot in the beginning but didn't understand why the author gave her the relationship she did with Jean Paul It just didn't make sense and didn't develop the story any OddI realize this sounds like I didn't like it at all Which isn't true I did but became sort of disillusioned with the characters in the e

    eBook The Virgin Blue PDF Þ The Virgin Epub / Õ cloudunblock.co Õ virgin free, blue download, The Virgin book, The Virgin Blue KindleI was incredibly disappointed in this book I had read Girl With a Pearl Earring and been very impressed so I picked up this one expecting something as good Well maybe not AS good since The Virgin Blue was her first book and I was prepared to give her some wriggle room for growth and learning and so onLet me say that I think the book's premise is very strong and I really loved the 'flashbacks' to Isabella In my opinion th

    eBook The Virgin Blue PDF Þ The Virgin Epub / Õ cloudunblock.co Õ virgin free, blue download, The Virgin book, The Virgin Blue KindleApparently this was Tracy Chevalier's first novel uite different from most of her other ones I have read two other novels by this author Girl with a Pearl Earring and The Lady and the Unicorn and have enjoyed both very much This author has a style that appeals to me simple and straightfoward but with a beauty of its own in the way she captures the characters that compose her storiesAlthough I liked The Virgin Blue reading it in two days I ended up

    eBook The Virgin Blue PDF Þ The Virgin Epub / Õ cloudunblock.co Õ virgin free, blue download, The Virgin book, The Virgin Blue KindleI picked it up and a day and a half later I set it down At first I wasn't sure what I was getting myself into but 20 pages in and I was completely hooked Since I haven't read anything else by Tracy Chevallier I wasn't sure I would enjoy her writing I was happy to discover she has a natural knack for character development I found her to be a very honest author unafraid to describe what we are really feeling inside Exposing the vulnerability of human nature with her intertwining stories of love hate religion persecution adultery and redemptionThe pace of the novel starts off a little slowly there is a lot to get through to grasp all the characters and their roles Halfway muddling through the French dialog was a little difficult at first but well worth the effort And as the story progressed became intense and began revealing the secrets shared by the two main characters the chapters became shorter and shorter the structure of the chapters began to change which increased the pace set e

    eBook The Virgin Blue PDF Þ The Virgin Epub / Õ cloudunblock.co Õ virgin free, blue download, The Virgin book, The Virgin Blue Kindle45 starsThis book gets a pretty easy 45 stars from me I'm a sucker for a good historical fiction with a female character researching her connection to her family's past which is the basic sum of the plot That said this book had a lot going for it aside from my natural affinity for the plot lineI will admit that a lot of my historical fiction reading has been by certain authors and set in c

    eBook The Virgin Blue PDF Þ The Virgin Epub / Õ cloudunblock.co Õ virgin free, blue download, The Virgin book, The Virgin Blue KindleOkay maybe 15 stars is fair Anyway this book annoyed the heck out of me This is my third Chevalier novelalso read Girl w a Pearl Earring and The Lady and the Unicorn and enjoyed the first two this is her first novel and I think it shows There are 2 main characters in this book both women but living centuries apart Ella the present day character is an American ex pat living in France with her husband and Isabelle is her distant ancestor living in France during the time of the Huguenots My main problem with the novel is that Ella is just plain annoying selfish self centered and self absorbed I'm supposed to sympathize with her because oh how women have suffered at the hands of menincluding Isabelle mostly bc she had the misfortune of being born with red hair and having a fascination for the Virgin Mary in Protestant France but that's another long story But boy does she make it hardIn the end I finished the novel bc I was curious a

    eBook The Virgin Blue PDF Þ The Virgin Epub / Õ cloudunblock.co Õ virgin free, blue download, The Virgin book, The Virgin Blue KindleDefinitely not as good as Girl with a Pearl Earring I was really enjoying the first two thirds of the book but I didn't like the direction it took after that There are two parallel stories happening and the modern one is less believable than the one that takes places four hundred years ago I liked the character Isabelle from the 1500's much better than Ella from modern day I'll still read by Chevalier She has a nice style of writing that totally sucks me in

    eBook The Virgin Blue PDF Þ The Virgin Epub / Õ cloudunblock.co Õ virgin free, blue download, The Virgin book, The Virgin Blue KindleSurprisingly this was somewhat a book about a mystery but it did get me thinking uite a bit particularly about memories and how they are stored in the brain Because one of the two main characters develops memories from her distant relative distant being 400ish years ago I started to wonder about memories and if we will ever figure out a way to harvest and save memories to be viewed when host is no longer with us It seems crazy but maybe at one time it seemed crazy to think we could hear a voice or see a picture of someone long after they were gone The story itself was very good and I enjoyed the language the author used her use of imagery and the way she described Ella's and Isabelle's feelings What I did not appreciate was the way the book ended I understand the agenda of an author to leave the reader to make up some bit of their own when tying

    eBook The Virgin Blue PDF Þ The Virgin Epub / Õ cloudunblock.co Õ virgin free, blue download, The Virgin book, The Virgin Blue KindleLike all of Tracy Chevalier's books this is beautifully written and deeply engrossing Unlike her other books this has elements of a thriller The story alternates between Isabelle du Moulin aka “The Rousse” for her copper colored hair and her distant descendant Ella Turner Both are trained as midwives both are not able to practice their craft Isabelle's husband Ettienne won't let her Ella has moved with her husband to France for his work and she doesn't have the necessary certifications to work thereElla is having repetitive dreams about being enveloped in a shade of blue She decides to investigate her family tree she is descended from Tourniers in Franch who Anglicized the

    eBook The Virgin Blue PDF Þ The Virgin Epub / Õ cloudunblock.co Õ virgin free, blue download, The Virgin book, The Virgin Blue KindleTracy Chevalier is a very frustrating author for me I liked the first one I read The Lady and the Unicorn I adored the second one I read Falling Angels and was disappointed with the third The Girl in the Pearl Earrings This is the 4th and once again disappointed The thing that disappoints me most is that the subject material is so rich I can see how the book could be so good I know nothing about the Huguenots in France and would love to read I love history I love genealogy and so forth This could have been a really great storyInstead one of the protagonists I really didn't care for the modern Ella I did like the way the author showed how it was difficult to adjust to life in small town France The book described that well in a
