Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent descriptions Vivid descriptions of landscape and beauty. Action is well invoked. Characters are well formed. Voices of author, narrator and plot mingle throughout. Captures opinions of the three classes but a little fragmented. Simply written and interspersed with dialogue. Well worth the read.
