Too many characters. It was too hard to keep track of how they were all inter-related or not. And since I was bored and skipping around, I probably missed why this St. Ann's well was so important to everyone...
The writing was eloquent and beautiful. The story lagged at times, but was usually very engaging and interesting, which was enough to push me through the lagging boring bits. In many ways, this story reminded me of many of China Mievelle's novels, but with more effeminate and poetic prose.
Charming friendship story.
