To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This should have been the perfect book for me: Civil War, intrigue, women's treatment, an intelligent heroine , a compassionate hero - all the makings for a good read. However, it was not a page turner. The writing style was awkward; some characters were extremely predictable, plus the sub stories were distracting fillers. And the ending? Anticlimactic!
Slow, uninteresting read. I struggled thru this book, but can't say I enjoyed it much. I didn't find it interesting. A woman's struggle thru the civil war as she was arrested as a spy and dealt w/ being imprisoned during the war.........lots of words to not lend much interesting reading.
