Valley of Grace by Marion Halligan

I couldn't find a blurb that did this book justice. It's one of those quiet books that appears to be very simple but is actually beautifully constructed and exquisitely detailed. The setting - Paris - was a lovingly described character in it's own right and the human characters were interesting and well drawn. I read a book by Marion Halligan years ago but I don't recall enjoying it quite as much as I did this one - I think I will have to revisit her earlier work.
Rating - I give this 4/5
