This is historical fiction set in the late 1800's and early 1900's, which I enjoy. This book was a solid 3 stars for me. I liked the characters. I liked the plot. It had a great premise and it felt like I was being introduced to something new.

As far as the writing goes, I expected more descriptive strokes regarding the characters and how they navigated their journey. They were also quite similar in action and thought. However, there was plenty of description regarding the sense of place. That part was well done. So 3 stars. It was nice afternoon read.
