Are you sure a male wrote this?

Has a good sensitivity to it. Loaded with historical information, although this gets lenghty and bogged down @ times. Fair character development. A good read. I've all ready purchased another book by this author.

    This novel was recommended to me by someone whose taste I normal

    This novel was recommended to me by someone whose taste I normally share, so I expected to enjoy the read. The plot also sounded intriguing.

    Sadly, there is too much authorly intrusion, too many inbuilt lectures and distractions, and it is awash with purple prose. These drown the underlying story.

    It's a pity that the desire to impress outshone the desire to entertain, though I'm sure this author has the talent to do much better.
