I wasn't sure if I would enjoy this book when I purchased it because I generally don't like reading about events of the 1800s, but the title struck me so I took the chance. Am I glad I did. What a great read. The title gives away most of the plot, but the book is so well written and the story is so fascinating that I couldn't put it down. I read it on a plane ride across country. Fantastic book that I recommend highly.
