    Much better than I thought it would be I judged this on its cover and wasn t thrilled about reading it Now I think I ll have to get hold of the first and the thrid one The world has changed so much from the late 1800 s early 1900 s I can t even imagen things being like that with so much emphases on your class and race tho I know it still goes on Although I did like Sophie as a main character I actually perfered Evie I can only hope her story is told in one of the other books Good read.

    Vuurvlinder is het tweede deel in de Eden trilogie, maar is prima op zichzelf te lezen Het is een meeslepend verhaal over het vroegere Jamaica en de heersende klassenverschillen die zijn overgebleven na afloop van het slaventijdperk En hoewel iedereen uit de hogere klasse zich degelijk voor wil doen, spelen wraak en afgunst daar een grote rol en zit een schandaal in een klein hoekje Sophie wordt als een erg innemend hoofdpersonage neergezet en je kunt je als lezer dan ook gemakkelijk inleven in [...]

    I wasn t expecting to like this as much as The Shadow Catcher because it focuses on Sophie, not Madeleine, but I think in the end I liked Sophie than her sister I know Madeleine just wants to do the right thing, but Sophie doesn t want to let society s expectations and opinions stop her from doing what she wants to do, which you ve got to admire This story was desperately sad in parts, but also moving and funny, and I couldn t stop thinking about it after I d finished reading it.

    Read only the first three chapters and they were enough to convince me that it was a rambling, boring tale Even the protagonists were forcing their relationship and I don t mean it literally the way it sounds P

    Just OK for me, I struggled through it, it didn t keep my attention, out of all the characters, the best developed was Ben.

    Outstanding historical fiction Unfortunately, the author now seems to be concentrating on a sort of juvenile version of Jean Auel.
