Another narrator and a better writer. Not to be flippant but this book is a mess.
Pretty much everything. The writing is very amatuerish and awkward.
I can't think of one. This could have been a good historical novel and I thought it would be. Instead the book is filled with inconsistency and is an narrative nightmare.
- Jan "I am a retired school counselor (middle and elementary) and an avid reader. I am a lover of great mysteries, quirky protagonists, and medical/scientific non-fiction. I travel a lot and love the freedon audiobooks give me to drive, work, and relax while enjoying a good book. On my ipod I have eclectic musical selections as well as audiobooks. I will strive to never steer you wrong in a review."
Great novel with strong heroine
