This book was pretty awesome. At first I was a little wary, since I wasn't too keen on the idea of hearing about Connie's story, but I was certainly wrong. I loved how the two narratives, that of the past and that of the present (well, 1991 anyway), wove together. Howe crafted a fantastic story, and I was pleasantly surprised that the novel had supernatural aspects, something I wasn't expecting. And I loved Sam... sigh.

My one gripe is how dense Connie seemed to be at certain points. I was getting frustrated and impatient for her to figure certain things out, things that should have been obvious for a PhD candidate in American colonial history. I also figured some other stuff out before the characters, though I don't think that was Connie's fault haha.

But other than that, I thought the plot moved along pretty nicely and I blew through the second half.
