I enjoy foreign historical fiction (and if you go back far enough, it's all foreign to me). I could tell that the author was focusing hard on the historical information; trying to get in as much as possible. I wasn't very drawn into the main character, although I was quite interested in her outcome. Her personal life was a nice touch and very interesting, but I'm glad there were many historical explanations also.
