The story within a story format worked pretty well, and the information given about the orphan boys transporting the smallpox vaccine was intriguing, but it dragged in the middle and lost momentum until the last several chapters. I am glad that I read it, for the writing was beautiful and I learned a great deal, but I would not read it again or recommend it to anyone I know.
