Biografia breu
Rosina Lippi was born on January 14, 1956 in Chicago, Illinois. She has lived for long periods in the Austrian alps, on the East coast (where she earned a PhD in linguistics from Princeton) and Michigan. After twelve years as a tenured professor --getting up early and staying up late to write fiction-- she took heart in hand and left academia. These days she writes full time from her home on Puget Sound, where she lives with her husband (the Mathematician), their daughter (the Girlchild), Tuck and Bunny (the puppy boys) and the Girlchld's two cats. She divides her time between her next novel, family, friends, television and textile arts.

Ms. Donato tells a good tale. The characters have dimension and the historical details seem well researched. I wince when I see an incorrect use of the word “which” when “that” is the appropriate one. My personal problem, I realize. This word choice arose frequently. It interrupted the flow for me, but I pressed on and am glad I did.

Well-researched historical fiction, set mainly in 1880s New York City, that touches on many of the urban, social, and political issues of that time. The main character, surgeon Dr. Lilianne ("Anna") Savard, is an intelligent, independent-minded, strong woman, as is her cousin Sophie Savard, also a physician, and their Aunt Quinlan, an artist stymied by arthritis in her later years. The novel is part love story, part social commentary on issues of contraception, abortion, working conditions, bigotry, class structure, homelessness, poverty, and orphaned children.… (més)

This second of two books in the Waverly Place duology is the continued saga of the Savard and Mezzanotte families in 1880s New York City and suburban New Jersey. I found it a little more contrived than the first book. It was murder mystery meets historical fiction meets social ills meets love story. It almost was too much. Nevertheless, still well-researched and well-written.
