Ugh to the ending - long and drawn-out existential spin that did nothing more than drone on. The story otherwise was done well. I enjoyed the character development and attention to place.

John Adams
“It should be your care, therefore, and mine, to elevate the minds of our children and exalt their courage; to accelerate and animate their industry and activity; to excite in them an habitual contempt of meanness, abhorrence of injustice and inhumanity, and an ambition to excel in every capacity, faculty, and virtue. If we suffer their minds to grovel and creep in infancy, they will grovel all their lives.”
John Adams
