I didn't re-call reading any of Taylor Caldwell's books before and this one looked interesting. Since a lot of her books are no longer available at local libraries I found a used copy at Amazon.

This book was written in the 1950's and you can tell. It was so blah and hard to get through. For a short book it took a lot longer to read then I thought it would. I pushed through it.
I know it's not great literature, but I liked it anyway. For some reason, it stuck with me.
