    2. Imagine loving a man for twenty years, but not being able to tell him so Imagine sleeping in a room down the hall from this man you love for twenty years Imagine having to watch this man interact day after day with his wife and children Ana watches for twenty years before she finally has the opportunity to act on her love.The story starts in El Salvador during the time of civil war and brutality Ana loses her entire village and is the only one to walk away Why was she saved She was saved not onc [...]

    3. The book is extremely well written, and you re weaving in and out of the lives of Ana and the Trellis family, waiting to see how their fates are revealed I had some problems connecting emotionally to the book, and still kind of do I felt too far removed from these people s lives and their emotions to really fully latch on to the story, and while I eventually somewhat warmed up to them I feel like I would have liked to hear about them to really embrace them with all their faults.

    4. As her beloved lays sick and dying, Anna recounts vivid details of her life leading up to this moment From her childhood in El Salvador, to her struggles and travels to the United States first living in a convent, then eventually becoming a nanny for a wealthy southern California family.Although the synopsis seems really simple, the book itself is not Cecila Samartin does a fantastic job of weaving together the past with the present of Anna s life with key overlapping elements She uses 1st and 3 [...]

    5. Vigil is an interesting and beautifully written novel Although you may think this would be a disheartening story, it was not Yes, there is sadness, but is also a story about happiness, friendship, and family Each character is carefully developed with Ana as the one moral constant in the family Eventually she is influenced by the immorality of the family members and conflict occurs.The story was captivating as Ana reflects back on her life starting as a child in El Salvador hiding from soldiers A [...]

    6. Vigil was in one word Amazing In the first pages you will meet a woman, Ana who is sitting vigil by her dying husband s bedside Along the way she is taken back to her impoverished beginnings in war torn El Salvador Ana is such a memorable, inspiring character that she becomes real, and instills her story in my mind long after the end of her story What could a book and its author hope to be to its reader than to take a place in the heart and mind, and for him or her to take something away from t [...]

    7. Me ha encantado esta novela Me ha parecido preciosa Es muy pausada, tranquila y tierna Pero no por ello decae el inter s en ning n momento Es el primer libro que leo de esta autora y me ha resultado todo un descubrimiento Leer m s de ella.

    8. 4.5 starsJust like Ghost Heart, this book really got to me I don t often read stories about the baby sitter almost nun falling in love with the father of the household, and I m really glad I just did At first I was afraid that the childhood in El Salvador would be glanced over and just there to score some sympathy points, but Cecilia Samartin kept connecting back to her childhood so perfectly to everything related to what was currently going on in Ana s life I had a bit of a problem, just like w [...]

    9. Simply the best book I have ever read.Beautiful, heart breaking, hopeful, full of love, full of life I don t know where to start, except to tell you all to read Cecilia Samartin now She is an amazing writer The beauty of Samartin s writing is that she makes you love all the character, and not in a literary wow this is a good character and i feel sorry for her kind of way, but in a way you love your siblings and your friends The characters are, simply put, real, they come alive from the page, and [...]

    10. Cecilia Samartin s novel chronicles the deathbed vigil a Salvadoran woman holds for her employer of 20 years Through an excellent use of flashbacks, we learn where Ana comes from and how she ends up in her employer s household The beauty of Vigil is found in the incredible strength and wisdom Ana finds from her own personal tragedies Unlike 95% of contemporary fiction written today, Ana doesn t whine, blame or otherwise annoy her reader with baggage Instead, she honors her losses by living up to [...]

    11. Adam va mourir Avec lui Anna perd son grand amour Eux qui avaient mis tant d ann es se l avouerAlors Anna se souvient, elle repense sa vie pass e, et aux v nements qui l ont men e l son enfance dans un Salvador en proie la guerre civile, le massacre de sa m re et des habitants de son village par la junte, l orphelinat, l exil vers les tats Unis, le couventPuis cette d cision de soeur Josepha de la placer, 22 ans, chez Adam et Lillian Trevis, riches californiens Plus que la gouvernante des deux e [...]

    12. Not fast paced or suspenseful, never the less I was drawn in by this story of love and innocence This is the story of Ana, whose childhood was interrupted by violence in her village home in El Salvador She spends the rest of her childhood into early adulthood in a convent, intending to become a nun, and is completely sheltered from the outside world When she eventually goes to California to become a nanny, she becomes a much loved and needed member of the family she works for As she tends her be [...]

    13. touchant et inspirant Citation on entend souvent dire que l amour a le pouvoir de changer le monde Si c est vrai, alors l amour d une m re a le pouvoir de changer l orbite des plan tes, de la lune et des toiles D apr s mon exp rience, il n y a rien de plus courageux, de plus constant, de plus tendre et de plus farouche que l amour d une m re C est le coeur m me d une famille, le noyau qui la nourrit au fil des g n rations C est aussi dans cet amour maternel que les enfants puisent leur grandeur [...]

    14. This started out well with vivid but not overly detailed descriptions of the horrors of those who lived in El Salvador caught between the two factions I remember oh too well many of the various events that made the news and many of them are woven into the story.As a love story, I didn t care for it as much, partly due to the incredible sadness of the story I deeply dislike women whose lack of morals damage their children and even though a work of fiction, it left me irritated at the end The nann [...]

    15. I liked it, but not my favorite Samartin book I took quite a while to get me interested, and it was quite slow paced I felt the plot twist at the end was unneccesary Also, a few of the characters bothered and annoyed me Ana s constant selflessness started to bother me a lot, especially towards the end the funeral Mrs Trellis behavior about the funeral made me want to squish her head, and I got really mad at her because of how she treated her daughter, especially around the prom I also feel like [...]

    16. I love this book, also read Tarnished Beauty and will soon read Broken Paradise She is an amazing author for sure.Only reason for not giving it 5 stars is beacause it reminds me too much of the movie Sound of Music The main character in the book is too similar to Maria, main character in the movie Young, sent away from a convent against their will to work for a troubled family etc etc Even the scene when they first come to the new family with only a suitcase and hesitate to ring the door bellmpl [...]

    17. Vigil plods toward a predictable ending What it lacks in speed and suspense it makes up for with well drawn characters and a good love story.Ana s life in El Salvador was fascinating but too short, I d have liked to read about her background She is an engaging character and you ll find yourself rooting for her Lillian is possibly the perfect villain, evil and so easy to hate.This is a pleasant, afternoon read.

    18. I really like the way she writes, makes it hard to put the book down It s interesting to me how our experiences color our lives, and helps, or makes, us become who we are Some people are humbled, and some are hardened by what life throws at them I like Ana and her gentle ways, and like how the characters have different aspects to them, like we all have.

    19. Muchas expectativas para un libro que fue lo m s normal y predecible Al comienzo del libro dec a algo como te va a cambiar la vida la verdad que es una historia normal y no me ocasion emoci n o inter s Entretiene pero no es algo que recomendar a Soy generosa con las tres estrellas aunque me tard tres meses en leerla.

    20. What a great read A story of a woman who had a very hard scary and upsetting childhood she then works as a Nanny for a couple with a very involved life How her life changes over the years is very realistic How great her faith was I can actually see this happening in real life I looke forward to reading books by this author

    21. Ante la enfermedad de su amado, Ana hace una revisi n de su vida, desde que se enfrenta a la guerra de El Salvador, hasta que la hermana Josepha entra en su vida para darle algo de paz que la vida le esta robando Y entonces entrara a formar parte de la familia Trellis, poni ndole en entredicho todas su preconcebidas ideas

    22. Interesting story, but I had a hard time following the switch in voice from the young Ana to the one looking back The author chose to do it by one writing in first person, the other in third Few authors master the weaving of different time frames without confusing the reader.

    23. This was a random pick for me The book follows the protagonist through most of her life, which i quite like, and as it does, you smoothly watch her mature, and you notice the subtle changes that occur over a long period of time

    24. Viihdytt v romantiikkaa Kyll t m n kanssa yhden flunssaisen kes y n vietti Kevyt kes kirja, joka on v h n kuin pari astetta parempaa kioskikirjallisuutta Mutta todella koukuttava ja nopeasti luettava

    25. Des personnages profonds, une histoire puissante et magnifique sur l amour et l amour maternel qui nous transporte Ce livre est une douceur, un v ritable bain de bonheur au c ur duquel on plonge sans h siter.

    26. Een schitterende roman die je niet snel zult vergeten.Zodra je aan het boek begint zit je al in een prachtig verhaal dat je niet meer los laat,het boek is n en al liefde en gaat van het verleden naar het heden wat erg goed samen komt.Aanrader
