My expectations for this book were clearly set too high. Though the overall plot was a good one, Jordan's style was shockingly poor. This is the same author who wrote 'Mudbound?" The book needed another good edit, employing far too many adverbs, too much telling not showing. It could have been so much better. I consider this a sophomore slump. I'd still read her next effort.
