This was an exhausting book to read. It was so full of details that honestly were not necessary.....who cared about the furniture in the house, or the clothes, or the food cooked, or the taste of ale in different the time things became important, I was frankly too fed up and started to skip. The premise was very good but too slow, like molasses and then the ending just came suddenly as if the author was too tired as well.......
