Falling angels
Tracy Chevalier
Adult Fiction CHEVALIER

Comments  Summary  Excerpt  Reviews  Author Notes

Summary: Time magazine crowned Girl With a Pearl Earring "a portrait of radiance...a jewel." In her New York Times bestselling follow-up, Tracy Chevalier once again paints a distant age with a rich and provocative palette of characters. Told through a variety of shifting perspectives--wives and husbands, friends and lovers, masters and their servants, and a gravedigger's son-- Falling Angels follows the fortunes of two families in the emerging years of the twentieth century. Graced with the luminous imagery that distinguished Girl With a Pearl Earring, Falling Angels is another dazzling tour de force from this "master of voices" ( The New York Times Book Review ). A Book Sense 76 pick.
