Really good. Split into three (four, really, but) very distinct sections, each even structurally different (first-person, third-person, diary) but held together by a single historical event (the Mountain Meadows masacre). Each is told from the perspective of one of Lee's wives. The first (second, really, but) section is the longest, but the next, Ann's, was my favorite. Could definitely work on its own as a little novella, really well-paced and efficient. I don't usually read historical fiction. IIIII llllliiiikkkkkeeeedddd tttthhhhiiiisssss bbbbboooooooooookkkkkk.
