The compelling story of two women, born four centuries apart, and the ancestral legacy that binds them. 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…… (més)

La joven Isabelle du Moulin vive fascinada por el profundo color azul de la hornacina de la Virgen en la iglesia del pueblo. Son malos tiempos para admirar un icono católico: en la Francia del siglo XVI, el protestantismo libra una lucha feroz contra la vieja religión romana... Cuatrocientos años más tarde, Ella Turner llega al mismo pueblo. Guiada por unos extraños sueños con la ayuda del bibliotecario, buscará el rastro del pasado hasta desentrañar el secreto familiar que ha permanecido escondido durante siglos.

Apparently her first book, which I didnt realise.[return][return]Think I preferred the modern day story line, possibly because my 16th century French/Swiss Religious history is a little lacking, and I didnt get all the references to "The Truth" and didnt appreciate how different this religion was from being a Catholic.[return][return]There is some french written here, mainly in speech. Rarely translated word-for-word, people with basic French (me: "C" grade O-level, 1986!) dont suffer too much as there's plenty of context around - I have read reviews where the level of french is complained at, probably written by people who've never bothered to learn any french ever.

Interesting, unpredictable characters. Great setting descriptions put you in late 16th century and modern day southern France and eastern Switzerland. ( )

This story is told by alternating between medieval Europe and modern Europe, more specifically France and Switzerland. It's center is a young American woman drawn to her family history which she uncovers with help from locals and relatives she uncovers. She's a midwife and deals with life and death from a perspective focusing on sexuality and child birth. That's the empowering part. It also takes us through religious persecution, witchcraft and brutality. That's the difficult part. Central issues are red hair, the color blue, and recollections of psalms she hadn't known she knew. Thrown in a marriage that is falling apart, a sympathetic new man and it's an interesting story. As I read it I realized I most have read this book long ago. I had no memory of it but eventually could anticipate a few crucial events. I could not remember how it ended. ( )

Lovely writing, as always, but I feel like I missed the point of the novel -- like I'm not sure what Chevalier was trying to get across. ( )

Epígraf
"De la mateixa manera que el groc sempre acompanya la llum, també podria dir-se que el blau encara duu un principi de foscor dintre seu. Aquest color té en l'ull un efecte peculiar i gairebé indescriptible. Com a tonalitat és poderosa, però es troba en la banda negativa, i en el seu grau més alt de puresa és, en certa manera, una negació estimulant. La seva aparença, doncs, és una mena de contradicció entre excitació i repòs."

GOETHE, Teoria dels colors
Dedicatòria
Per a Jonathan
Primeres paraules
Es deia Isabelle, i quan era petita els seus cabells canviaven de color en el poc temps que tarda un ocell a cridar el seu company.

He had to gather the materials secretly: the feather from a kestrel, its point cut and sharpened; the fragment of parchment stolen from a corner of one of the pages of the Bible; a dried mushroom that dissolved into black when mixed with water on a piece of slate.... Miraculously, he drew six marks to form ET.
