Good book. As some mentioned somewhat wordy and several things not worth overly concentrating on. I'm midway into the book and have one question. Who is the father of Ellen's child? I don't know if Butler ever gets around to letting us know.
I'm about 65 pages out from the end and it seems like Butler omits any mention of the child that Ellen was carrying when she was kicked off the Pontifex's estate. What the hell happened to the baby?
