I am astonished that this book was free. I have read many of the free books, and the grammer, sentence structure, editing all leave a lot to be desired. That doesn't mean i didn't appreciate them, I just recognized that these books may have been first published attempts at writing. However, This book. WOW. The author should be making a ton of money and having this published by one fo the big publishing houses. Well-written,evocative of the period in which it written, and beautifully realized. I hope to see more from this author READ THIS BOOK!!!

Very deep and some what depressing. The main character suffers one bad thing after another. The ending left me wanting.

This book was not too bad. I thought it started a little slow but had a nice twist to it.
