My Review: This is way outside my normal comfort zone but being a relatively short read and it was offered as a free download, I thought I would give it a try. I found it to be a really interesting alternate history. I remember hearing only briefly at some point about Topsy so I like that it took a minor side history and brought it to light. I absolutely loved the perspective of the elephants and the way their family network and history is presented. It was certainly an interesting and intriguing story to read, though I did feel like it was incomplete at the end, yes we know what happened to Topsy, but the rest of the fabricated events needed just a little more conclusion for me. Definitely worth giving it a try if you have a little time and are looking for something new and unique.
