it was ok
bookshelves: history

I am giving this book two stars because it was just so dull I had a hard time reading it. I also felt that it isn't really history as much as it is a revisionist retelling of the story. There is too much reliance on presentism. It is short on facts about what was at issue.
Then I guess that is its purpose. To tell women's stories. I wish Roberts were a better story teller.
