    2. A well-researched and well-planned novel. It may or may not have happened but the narration bears such a close resemblance to history, one might actually believe it is true. The characters are well-defined, and their motives well-explained. This is an entertaining and enlightening novel of a period of history which most people now look upon with horror and regret. The author’s foreword is also an enlightening explanation of how she came to write the story.

To accept that this might have all been real and the writer was given this revelation as described is something I am still pondering on.
