Kelly | 782 comments I did not know much about Mata Hari before reading Michelle Moran's historical fiction novel. The author tells of Mata Hari's difficult earlier life before she became a famous dancer. Mata Hari rises to success, but she also makes decisions that get her into trouble. Moran's writing develops Mata Hari's character and I especially liked how she expands on the long term friendship that Mati Hari had with her lawyer. Despite this, I felt that I never truly understood her. The book tells how Mata Hari may have rationalized many or her actions and relationships during World War I. She was condemned of espionage, but was she really guilty or a scapegoat who was misunderstood?
