I loved "Burial Rites" and snapped this book up without getting too far into the description.
While I liked the first book better, this one was still a good read.
I like how the author really sets me in the scene. You can really tell that she has done a lot of research on this, as well. Especially if you read the author's note at the end. I also just read that the author picked a mysterious disease for Micheal so it would add to the mystery. I know I was having a hard time just picturing what the heck he had wrong with him.
I had to laugh a few times when those ladies would meet up at the well. The superstitions that they had were hilarious. I'm rolling my eyes now at some of the beliefs.
A really great and entertaining read that had me mesmerized for hours.
Thanks to Little, Brown and Company and Net Galley for providing me with a free e-galley in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.
