Not a good historical fiction
By: Anita Shreve
Genre: Adult Historical fiction
1 0ut of 5
This book was bad for several reason. Nothing much happened until the very end and then it happened so fast it was ridiculous. Where was the chemistry? Then the book switched character point-of-view and it was hard to figure out whose it was until after a paragraph or so. I often had to reread after figuring out the point-of-view just to follow. Plus, there were only four chapters in entire book, which was frustrating. I felt I was getting nowhere. I have read Anita Shreve before and enjoyed the ones I read, especially The Pilot's Wife, so was surprised at how poorly written this one was. I would have given up, if it wasn't a book club book.
