Ella Turner does her best to fit in to the small, close-knit community of Lisle-sur-Tarn. She even changes her name back to Tournier, and learns French. In vain. Isolated and lonely, she is drawn to investigate her Tournier ancestry, which leads to her encounter with the town’s wolfish librarian. Isabelle du Moulin, known as Le Rousse due to her fiery red hair, is tormented and shunned in the village—suspected of witchcraft and reviled for her association with the Virgin Mary. Falling pregnant, she is forced to marry into the ruling family: the Tourniers. Tormentor becomes husband, and a shocking fate awaits her. Plagued by the color blue, Ella is haunted by parallels with the past, and by her recurring dream. Then one morning she wakes up to discover that her hair is turning inexplicably red.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Lindsay | 2/13/2014

    " A very enjoyable book with some complex and intriguing female characters. The linkage between the past and present was interesting, but not overdone and the story contained some surprises. "

    " This book is by the author who wrote Girl with a Pearl Earring, which I loved. I didn't love this one as much, but it was still a page-turner and ver historically interesting. I must warn you that it is rather sad and I didn't care for the ending much. "

    " I really didn't like the plot line for so many reasons. It was hard for me to put it down though, in the same way I slow down to see a bad car accident. You know something awful is going to happen, but you have to know what. This story has haunted me! "

    " Too cheesy, I finished it but just barely. "
