Review by: maygettainc on Oct. 19, 2011 :
Good job! This book was an entertaining read - the narrator had a convincing and consistent voice that was evocative of the period. At only a few points did I wish for more editing with regard to the plot - more details needed instead of too much added, thankfully. I found myself swept up in the story - nicely paced.
