The plot of this book is pure Jackie Collins, talented beautiful woman gets rich older hunk, rather common hopeless lover from afar commits suicide for love of her. The style a ghastly overblown attempt at Henry James.
What twaddle, I hated it so much that halfway through I sought out antis on the internet and found a woman who said she felt like going back to the bookstore and asking for a full refund. So did I.
The best book I've read in a long time. The descriptive power of the author is mighty, and the plot is genuinely satisfying. History, philosophy, even romance - Hazzard hits a high five in all categories.

Although the style was difficult and the plot structure very strange, I found the book absorbing, especially the bits of philosophy thrown in almost carelessly. She uses metaphor at the most surprising times, but the characters stand out well delineated because of them.. A difficult but well worth plowing ahead read.
