    1. Watermark is the lovely sequel to Touchwood. People who read TouchWood should definitely continue on to this book. In fact, even though (view spoiler)[Louisa isn't actually in the book (hide spoiler)], we get a much better idea now of why Rayann is so in love with Louisa, the woman who is 27 years her senior, as opposed to just being totally in lust with her, as was my impression from Touchwood. On the other hand, people who have not read Touchwood should definitely pick that one up first to bet [...]


    2. Intense and hopeful. Glad I read Touchwood prior to reading this book, the author's narrations are wonderful. I always look forward to a Karin Kallmaker novel


    3. It's a classicI love reading Kallmaker and the continuation of the Touchwood characters. Couldn't out it down. Reading Kallmaker is joyful and enjoyable.


    4. Oddly, I enjoyed this more than it's predecessor. The characters were much more relatable in this story than in the first one.


    5. An albino in medieval France was often thought to carry the Devil's Mark, and in a fit of fear and superstition, a midwife's assistant cuts off newly born Auda's tongue and renders her mute for life. Auda not only survives, but is loved by her father and sister, sheltered and protected against those who may wish her harm, and against the threat of the Inquisition seeking to burn heretics.Her father, a papermaker and scribe, teaches her to read and write. Her courage and intelligence bring her to [...]


    6. Something is skates missing in relationship development. Just enough to be noticed. I never really understand why the characters are falling. Frustrating.


    7. If I had studied the cover before I started reading this book, I probably wouldn't have read it until after I read Touchwood. After all, I'm sure my wife owns it I just haven't found it yet. That being said, it was still an engaging read that tore at and touched my heartstrings.Even without having read Touchwood first, I thought this was a great book. From what I understand, if I had read that book first, I would have either better understood the characters, or hated the author from the way she [...]


    8. This book was heart breaking to read after only just finishing Touchwood. Half of me wanted to cry while the other half wanted to scream at the author "why?". It isn't a easy book to read, beautifully written like always with Kallmaker but so hard! If you want Louisa and Rayann to have their happily ever after I wouldn't recommend you read this.The ending of hope was uplifting after such an emotional roller coaster ride.


    9. A "Reader's Choice" book about the daughter of a papermaker in 1320. The Inquisition has come to this small French village. Auda is targeted because she was born an albino and is thought to be a witch. The details of life among the poor was interesting, as was the art of making paper. Pretty good for a first novel.


    10. I knew Louisa was going to die before I read the book, what I did not expect to find was her alive and suffering after the accident. It is well written, and show the pain Rayanna had to go through. Sad yet touching. The ending is a little too abrupt though.


    11. Formulaic and predictable. No where as decent as the previous book Painted Moon. Basically same story with a little twists. Nothing really exciting


    12. I love Karin Kallmaker books. In many ways, the story is always the same; but her characters are always well- drawn, & the situations/settings are always absorbing.


    13. ISBN-10: 0061849278 - Paperback $14.99Publisher: Avon A (April 13, 2010), 368 pages.Review copy provided by the publisher and TLC Book Tours.


    14. This novel is not light reading — it’s a novel of substance. It doesn’t take the easy way out by providing a happy ending in the traditional sense, but it’s still a hopeful ending.
