    The Virgin Blue PDF/EPUB ✓ The Virgin ePUB ´ virgin epub, blue ebok, The Virgin kindle, 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 quarters 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 o

    The Virgin Blue PDF/EPUB ✓ The Virgin ePUB ´ virgin epub, blue ebok, The Virgin kindle, 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 these segments were strong and interesting and well writtenWhere the book fell down was with Ella the modern voice I hated her character I found her whiny and self absorbed and I simply did not understand her motivations for the affair The breakdown in the relationship with her husband simply did not get conveyed nearly enough and I ended up feeling badly for Rick instead of seeing Ella's side Truthfully she had no side Another thing that annoyed me was Ella's supposed fluency in French achieved in

    The Virgin Blue PDF/EPUB ✓ The Virgin ePUB ´ virgin epub, blue ebok, The Virgin kindle, The Virgin Blue KindleApparently this was Tracy Chevalier's first novel quite 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 capt

    The Virgin Blue PDF/EPUB ✓ The Virgin ePUB ´ virgin epub, blue ebok, The Virgin kindle, 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 th

    The Virgin Blue PDF/EPUB ✓ The Virgin ePUB ´ virgin epub, blue ebok, The Virgin kindle, 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 certain areas which may make the book novel to me than to a widely read historical fiction fan but the setting and historical backdrops were both somewhat unfamiliar to me I've read books set in or around Paris but not in the French countryside as this is I thought she did a nice job of painting a picture of what life might be like for an American woman moving to a small town in Fra

    The Virgin Blue PDF/EPUB ✓ The Virgin ePUB ´ virgin epub, blue ebok, The Virgin kindle, 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 center

    The Virgin Blue PDF/EPUB ✓ The Virgin ePUB ´ virgin epub, blue ebok, The Virgin kindle, 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

    The Virgin Blue PDF/EPUB ✓ The Virgin ePUB ´ virgin epub, blue ebok, The Virgin kindle, The Virgin Blue KindleSurprisingly this was somewhat a book about a mystery but it did get me thinking quite 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

    The Virgin Blue PDF/EPUB ✓ The Virgin ePUB ´ virgin epub, blue ebok, The Virgin kindle, 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 tr

    The Virgin Blue PDF/EPUB ✓ The Virgin ePUB ´ virgin epub, blue ebok, The Virgin kindle, 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 diffi
