I was very disappointed in this book. I started the book hoping to gain another perspective about the most evil person in history. Instead, the book was written from the standpoint of a devil. To explain Hitler's behavior that "the devil made him do it" is an insult to the six million Jews he murdered, not to mention homosexuals and mentally challenged people whom he and his cronies tortured and killed. Additionally, I felt the book dragged. The focus was on Hitler's father and little about the young Hitler's makeup.
All Julia Spencer-Fleming's books follow the same format. The Reverend gets involved in a situation, goes out on her own to answer questions, gets into trouble and is rescued by the sherriff. However, they are all good reads in that she develops her characters well and the inner turmoil of Claire Ferguson is believeable. The novel moves right along. I really enjoy this author.
