    " I loved the idea of having a young girl follow her dreams to take a tour with her ballet company of the Amazon. It's a goal of mine to go to Brazil and Peru, so I respect her love of traveling somewhere exotic. However, a lot of it was tacky and I felt that it dragged on and on and on. "

    " Better than some of her other novels due to the heroine actually having some gumption. The extent of Harriet's family's repressiveness/ridiculousness made it more compelling than usual. The picture painted of her pursuant English admirer is charmingly laughable. I liked the tropical setting. I loved the Rhett Butlerish qualities of Rom. The reason this one gets knocked down is for the completely unnecessary promiscuity. Maybe that won't bother some of you. For me it was more troublesome due to the fact that her books are written for young readers. Not something I feel like I can condone even though by today's standards the writing of it was tame. "

    " A solid historical romance. The ballet setting suits the romance genre well; both are tightly formulaic, in a good way. I liked the early 20th century Amazonian setting and the characters were well-written if not somewhat cliched. Some talk of sex - the main character loses her virginity but it's vague and euphemistic which works well with the time period portrayed. "

    " First off, i love iva ibbhotson. she's on of my favoriote authors. but this book seemed to have a little more of an exotic flavor than she usually writes. set in brazil, of course it would be exotic. usually her books are set somewhere in europe. i liked this book a lot. it sort of had a hazy feel the whole time.
