The back and forth of 18th century France and present day New Orleans was off putting at first, but I got used to it. I didn't appreciate the religious instruction and God answering prayer as part of the story.
I have read all of Grisham's adult books and this is one of the best. It has the usual twists and turns but this time you aren't in on the outcome for quite awhile.
Banister/Baldwin is the usual Grisham intelligent confident protagonist.
Even timbre. He sounds like a story teller.
I just wanted it to keep going so I would know what happened.
I liked My Antonia because of the historical information. This is similar and better because of the modern references. I recommend this to anyone who likes U.S. history in the 20th century. The author narrating is fine. Some didn't like it, but I did.
