Just a middle-brow reader who loves a good story, recipe or how-to.
If you like the idea of an Esther retelling set in 1870's Oregon, this might be an enjoyable read for you. Unfortunately, I did not enjoy the writing style and found the story and characters to have less depth than I was hoping for. Saddest of all, it just wasn't memorable.
I always hesitate to give negative reviews. If the premise appeals to you, and you enjoy the writing style, then give it a go!
