This is a great example of historical fiction. Entertaining and educating the reader. I learned about a time and place that I had never even wondered about before.
This book makes me want to join a book club so I can further explore some of the themes. I came away from it wanting to pick a fight with the author over the "treatment" of the female characters. For a book that focused on the lives, thoughts, and dreams of five females, it seems to lack in "girl power." Perhaps this is intentional.
