This could have been a much better read, I found the presentation of characters to be flat, which led to a lack of connection to them and melding of them into just a generic cast of characters, that became easy to confuse with each other. That is my main gripe, but another is that rather than exciting tale of mystery, courage and close calls, many of tales told became more of a wash, rinse , repeat slog, than a vibrant tale of courage and resourcefulness.
I celebrate the telling of an important woman’s remarkable accomplishments, but this telling of her tale fades as you read it due to the author never breathing life into the time, place or participants. That said, if someone makes a movie based on this book I’d go - It’s not the story that was lacking it is just this particular telling of it.
