This is the book I’ve been looking for: a rich story from beginning to end, interesting characters, vivid scenery, orderly plot line, politics, history, theology…perfection!
For me, it was a similar experience to reading Cutting for Stone
… epic and engrossing, I couldn’t put it down. There are a few “men are scum” moments, but what book doesn’t have those?
I worry a bit when i enjoy a book this much …will others? … maybe it’s just me! Hubby read this as soon as I finished and loved it just as much, so at least there are two. Let me know if you’re with us.
