I received this book free from Paulette, in exchange of a honest review. Thank you, Paulette!
I really, really enjoyed this book!When I saw it, I know that is something different and I had to read it, but I didn’t expect to like it so much!
This was the very first book that I’ve read on my Kindle. And I read it in just 2 days, because I couldn’t put it down. The story hooked me and I was always wondering “What’s going to happen to Mildred and Edra?” That’s one of the greatest thing about this book: it hooks you and you can not put it down.
The characters are very, very well portrated. I sympathized with Mildred. I felt so sorry for her “persecution” because she is a good person, with a big heart and she didn’t deserve all this. I liked Edra too, but I hated some characters. I just wanted to shoot them , because they were so mean.
You can learn a lot of things while reading this book. I can learn not to judge someone just because he’s different . I also saw how evil someone can be. I even cried a little for Mildred, because it was soooo unfair.
Even if I’m not the “historical” type, I loved this book. It’s so well written and the story is so sad and yet so good, that you simply love it. I recommend this book if you’re tired of fantasy and want to read a good book.
This time, I am not gonna tell anyting about the action. You will have to read if you want to know about this book is about.
The year 1895 was filled with memorable historical events: the Dreyfus Affair divided France; Booker T. Washington gave his Atlanta address; Richard Olney, United States Secretary of State, expanded the effects of the Monroe Doctrine in settling a boundary dispute between the United Kingdom and Venezuela; and Oscar Wilde was tried and convicted for gross indecency under Britain’s recently passed law that made sex between males a criminal offense. When news of Wilde’s conviction went out over telegraphs worldwide, it threw a small Nevada town into chaos. This is the story of what happened when the lives of its citizens were impacted by the news of Oscar Wilde’s imprisonment. It is a chronicle of hatred and prejudice with all its unintended and devastating consequences, and how love and friendship bring strength and healing.
I hope that Paulette’s book will be read and loved by many of you. I loved it!
