  1. Excellent review! I’m so intrigued by this book, though I never seem to see anyone reading it. I didn’t realize so little of it was told by Mary herself, which definitely adds to my curiosity. I love the prospect of dualities being brought into conflict, as well, I didn’t realize so many would come into play here. Really looking forward to picking this up at some point, and glad to see you mostly liked it!

  2. What a bizarre story! Great review – this sounds so crazy and fascinating. I kind of like the idea that the story isn’t told from Mary’s perspective because that seems very fitting of how women’s stories were told for so long.

    • Thank you! I know; it’s so bizarre to think that this is based on true events. It really is a case of life being stranger than fiction. And I agree; I thought the way the narration was handled really enhanced the book’s themes.
