I read this book a few years ago and enjoyed it very much so I'll be interested to see what others think of it.
Hunh, I read it 8 years ago - didn't seem like that long ago! I liked it but don't remember a lot about it.
Couldn't for the life of me fathom why this was on the 1001 books list.
"Ironically, for a novel which has a lot of gold mining in it, she didn’t dig deep enough for me."

>4 arukiyomi: Hmm, looking forward to it even more now! It will be interesting to see what everyone thinks. I haven't read any of her books before.
I'm reading this - about half way through. I really like it. It's a familiar genre for me - historical fiction with an interesting setting and strong female characters.
I have a copy from the library but other books are taking precedence right now. I plan on getting to it soon.
I have completed The Colour and found it to be a well-written, strong historical fiction novel. The author excels in character development and I found each character that she introduced had valuable input to the story. This was the first book by this author that I have read, and now I am planning on definitely reading more.
