I haven't read much historical based fiction recently, and was glad for the mix when this book arrived. Johanna Moran writes with incredible imagery; I almost felt like I was in the book with the characters. The website states that this book is based on the original court case of the Oadses in the early 1900's. I would never have thought to write a book on a court case, so that alone was unique to this book. I enjoyed reading this, the plot, character development and everything was well written and smooth. The only reason I gave it a four out of five was because this particular court case is really of no interest to me, but I have no doubt it will be for others. This is Johanna Moran's debut novel, and I am excited to see what else she writes in the future.
