Fictional story about a Classical Author

Under the Wide and Starry Sky by Nancy Horan
Under the Wide and Starry Night

By: Nancy Horan

Genre: Historical fiction

Pages: 496

Published: 2014

Read: March

3 out of 5

I started this book thinking I would absolutely love it. Not only because I loved Loving Frank, being about an historical author, but also because the story captured me immediately. I should have remembered my review from The Historian- Don’t read books with more than 400 pages.  I was enthralled by the first third of book and the last third, but the middle dragged and most could have been left out. I still thought the book was well-written and I love Horan’s style of writing fictional stories about influential historical individuals
