I love books that entertain while filling one in on history of different places and times. This is one of the best books I have ever read.

A delicate, quiet book but with a memorable set of characters. Many similarities to Remains of the Day. The plot centres on a loyal servant and the depth and secret richness of his life. I found it sagged a bit near the end and got just a bit too emotional around the situation in "the village" (don't want to give away any plot). I would have cut 10 to 15 pages. Lovely portrait of serenity within chaos and of love and loyalty. Would make a wonderful movie, if the studios ever stop making mindless action films.
