An ambitious and interesting idea. The arrest of Oscar Wilde in England was linked to the jealousies and ignorance of a small rural community in America at the same time.
The era was portrayed beautifully and there were good strong characters. The gossip and trouble motivated by jealousy and resentment was as relevant today as then.
My only complaint was that in capturing the “innocence” and simplicity of the time, complexity and depth of the main characters was lost.
