Intricate plotting, good history, strong heroine

by jandr on Jul 31, 2008

Intricate plotting -- a bit too much so for me, but probably not for most. What I loved: Hannah Trevor, a strong, independent midwife and her almost-deaf eight year old daughter. Also, the detailed, responsible historical background, both in the depiction of daily life and in the specific details of Shay's Rebellion. I'll never again think of the Revolutionary War as quaint and relatively bloodless. Like all wars, it was bloody and horrible. The story is told inventively -- (fictional) court documents , recipes , the heroine's journal, and "Piecing the Evidence," as in piecing a quilt. In fact, quilting is the guiding metaphor for this, as for the earlier two in the Hannah Trevor trilogy. All are memorable.
