I was browsing books at the grocery store today and thought this sounded interesting. I have been thinking of reading something historical and lo and behold, there was this award winning book of historical fiction that appeared to be well written and captivating. So off I go...I'll let you know how it is when I am done!
Wow - what a book! It was an interesting read, and even intriguing, but it got pretty gruesome toward the last few chapters. I realize it was probably just being true to life and that things were really that "raw" in that place during that time, but it was a bit much for me.
