Juliet Blackwell is a great story teller, almost on par with Maeve Binchy. I enjoyed reading The Paris Key so I was certain The Lost Carousel of Provence would be enjoyable.

The story line moves between time lines in a smooth manner so you always know where you are in the story. It's a family story, which ironic as main character is an orphan without a family.
Cady Drake is an accomplished photographer who flies to Paris to take photos of carousels. She is intrigued by the story of the family carousel carved by famed Gustave Bayol. And so the adventure begins. Drama, intrigue, romance, travel; yes, all the ingredients for an enjoyable read.

The Lost Carousel of Provence by Juliet Blackwell travels through time but is ultimately a story of family. The book starts slowly, as it takes a while to get to know the different characters and time periods. The secrets of the book are also clear much before they are actually revealed in the story. I enjoyed this book for the introducing me to the history of carousels and giving me a whole new appreciation for artistry that goes into them.
