Book Review--The Historian, Elizabeth Kostova

Stunning in its reach, depth, and breadth, weaving history, travel, and a quest for Dracula into a tale that won't be rushed--an academic's literary delight.

Highly recommend for the serious and committed reader.

From the publisher:

To you, perceptive reader, I bequeath my history…

Late one night, exploring her father’s library, a young woman finds an ancient book and a cache of yellowing letters addressed ominously to ‘My dear and unfortunate successor’. Her discovery plunges her into a world she never dreamed of – a labyrinth where the secrets of her father’s past and her mother’s mysterious fate connect to an evil hidden in the depths of history.
