About the book: I really enjoyed reading this book, I had no idea where it was going and it had some "interesting" side stories to keep it moving. I am not totally sure that I understood the ending, I will probably read the last two chapers again before this book is released into the wild just to make sure I know what did happen in the end (it got a bit technical right at the end)

From the back cover: Two women in different centuries discover the allure of scientific research... and the cruelty of love. In 1860, seventeen-year-old Lavinia Huntington is transported from her Irish village to start a new life in Mayfair, London, as the wife of a gentleman anthropologist, thirty years her senior. A year later she is standing trial for his murder. In modern-day Los Angeles, forty-year-old Professor Julia Huntington, geneticist, returns from a field trip to Afghanistan. She has received a prestigious commission from the US Defence Department to research a genetic propensity to kill without remorse. At the same time, she discovers that her husband has betrayed her terribly. This is a story that crosses generations, a story of two women and their struggle with obsessive love and revenge. Part murder mystery, part psychological thriller, part commentary on genetics and human behaviour, sexual jealousy and betrayal, Soul is both provocative and unputdownable.

Off I go on a rural adventure to fill a space on a special bookcrosser's wishlist. I am looking forward to being read and re-released, over and over and over.
Have a great read.

Tobsha Learner never ceases to amaze me, not only are her characters well developed and the plots expertly crafted, but what clinches it for me every time is the wonderful use of language, so rich that reading her books are equal to enjoying the finest chocolate, melt in the mouth, one piece at a time, feeling a bit naughty as well...

this book was hard to put down and i thoroughly enjoyed reading it.
will take it to the BCC in Melbourne in Oct and release it 'on the big table'!

Released 15 yrs ago (10/4/2007 UTC) at ABC2007 in 2014 - Melbourne, Australia, BookCrossing Convention -- Controlled Releases

Thanks Makita21 - I've read a couple of Learner novels which were quite good.
