I am a big fan of historical details, but when the story feels like it comes to an abrupt halt to explain some point like a history book, it's not as enjoyable to read. The plot is interesting, although there are points where it drags. The jumps in time make reading it frustrating.
As a western tale, it is that. The characters were alright but I just didn't connect with them very well.
The second part of the book had more action, and the descriptions continued to help me feel like I was right there with the main characters.
Our book club had the rare opportunity to discuss this book with the author. What a delight it was to hear how she went about writing the book and where the origin of the story began.
