I hate to give a book a bad review, but this one was awful. The historical inaccuracies alone were enough to make me want to give up on it. I usually take about 2 days to read a book and this one took me over a month because I couldn't put up with it for more than a chapter at a time. It was VERY obvious that this was a novel from a first time fiction author. The dialogue was also very stilted and there were just too many point of view changes between different characters.
