FICTION WRITING: How to Write Your First Novel
on Oct. 12, 2012 :
A lavish Russian saga you can certainly sink your teeth into!
Russia’s Catherine the Great is depicted in a historically-accurate yet fictionally fleshed-out manner, making history come alive in a smart, needy woman who ignores the peasantry and doesn’t understand the heart of the country she’s ruling. Her intriguing story is contrasted with that of a fictional immigrant boy and his family who have come from Germany looking for a better life. The substantial characters are unusually well-developed and the writing is so good I didn’t even notice it – high praise indeed from an editor! Morrow’s first foray into novels is highly recommended.
