Wonderful....Maravilloso Oct 21, 2007
This book is an absolute jem for those romantics that are out there! It teaches you about the implications of a decaying aristocracy in the late 19th century in Brazil. But it also tends to take you way out there into the simplicity of the love between a man and a woman and the complications that can arise from it. Vita da Silva and León Cástro start an innocent game of flirtation and end up very far away from that.
I won't say anymore because it will spoil the book. If what you have read interests you, I highly recommend the book.
