On the other hand, it felt like it was really too short to accomplish much. I like how the author explored the ideas of polyamory/open marriages within what felt like a historically appropriate context and I always relish finding historical fiction about PoCs since that is a woefully underrepresented area of historical fiction (it's like some people think PoCs just popped up around the 1960s or something). It's sort of a romance but not in the usual way, although the ending made me smile.
So, overall, not bad! It was a quick read and maybe not as meaty as I would have liked but the narrator was quite fun.
3 out of 5 stars
