First of all, I’m not much of a reviewer. Mostly because I’m a talker, not a writer. But I did want to review this book because I enjoyed it so much. If you are looking for a more in depth review, check out the one written by Ionia.
I loved this book. The word pictures were so well done that I felt like I not only knew the characters, but I have mental images of them. Historical fiction can be ho hum or it can be as if you are living it. The author did a great job of inviting the reader to live it with her. I thought the book started a bit slow…maybe not so much slow, but it seemed much of the very beginning was unnecessary. Of course, once I finished the book, I saw it all tie together.
I highly recommend this book. It was an easy read…and engaging read. I can’t wait to read more by this author. Really, this was a great book. I’m not just saying that.
I gave it five stars on Goodreads.
