I almost missed the fact that it is an alternate history story, but I'm glad I looked over it twice and read the sample portion. No, I haven't read all 800+ pages yet, but I've read enough to know a well written story when I see one. It's not perfect, but in my opinion Miss Lanier is a real diamond in the rough (but not too rough at that). Not only has she created a plausible alternate world, but has also done an admirable job telling about it in a voice that wouldn't have been out of place in Victorian/Edwardian literature, no mean feat by any standards. Pay no attention that she is still in high school, or pay lots of attention because her future works will be ones to look for with relish.
I'll get back to you in 750 pages...
