This novel is full of characters that you will fall in love with (and some you will dislike, but the ones you'll love vastly outnumber the others). Set in the State of Washington, the stories of several women are told across time, linking their fates and heritages, with the eponymous Virgil acting as a sort of balancing, grounding point for the main plotline involving Madeleine. And you get a bittersweet but ultimately happy ending that will move you to tears (good ones). (Brian)
