RELAXING IN SAN RAMON, COSTA RICA, watercolor
I've just finished reading Tracy Chevalier's FALLING ANGELS and I liked it very much. It's the story of two young girls' friendship, and their mothers, and their families, at the beginning of the 20th Century in England. The story is told all in the first person, each chapter changes the person, and the point of view. It's the time of the suffragettes, even Mrs. Pankhurst appears! Very interesting, and Ms. Chevalier achieves a "grave success", pun intended, as many of the girls' meetings and much of the story happens...in the town cemetery.
