candis (12/24/14)

historically intriguing-
This is a tale that successfully integrates history as well as a modern day whodunit. I thoroughly enjoyed how the author made his characters come to life - in full complexity. It made for a wonderful read, and added to understanding the moral and ethical questions of living a life in such a contained community.
