Amaon I'm ashamed at you, you should know better and the ones your going to hurt by doing this is the author because people will be returning ithe book once they figure out what they have or just won't buy it once the word gets out.
I feel bad for the author it really is a good book.
My criticisms of the book are not based the subject matter. That I enjoyed. And I also enjoyed how Ms. Kidd created characters that bolstered the facts and dovetailed into the storyline. My criticism is that I wished she wouldn't have included so many details about Sarah's life. Why? Because I would have rather had my curiosity piqued instead of reading about ALL the details of her and her sister's lives. I was inspired to find out more about other unsung historical women like these two, but I really would have liked to have been inspired by the book to do more research into the two sisters's lives. One final thought: Perhaps I was a little asleep at the wheel when I first started reading this book but it wasn't until the end that I knew it was an account of the lives of people who had actually lived. All along I thought it was just Fiction. I felt pretty dumb, and sad too as I really would have read it much differently had I known the truth. If I had known that I would have researched and read at the same time, which is what I like to do with these types of books. But, I also didn't read any reviews or promotional material on the book or I would have known that. Plus I read an eBook version just jumping to the very beginning of the book. Oh well.
