Let me just begin with… this isn’t my usual type of read. I’ve never liked history (in high school or now), so the fact I was convinced by recommendations to read this book has to tell you something. People loved this book, and so did I.
The story is beautifully written, switching back and forth between character’s lives and time periods. Though, even with all of the back and forth, you always know exactly what the author is describing. It’s so well written I would just sit there listening to the Audible with my eyes closed, picturing the scene unfold in front of me.
