Sue Monk Kidd is an interesting and engaging writer and this, her latest work, is fabulous. She combines a human interest story with insights into a period of history that is not often explored -- the development of antislavery sentiment and the antislavery movement in the early 19th century. Read it!
Jake Halsey and his nemesis are both great characters. Readers will be caught up as I was trying to figure out what the next crime will be and why these crimes are occurring in the first place. What is particularly intriguing about this book though are the technological innovations used to help catch the wine killer. A bonus for anyone living in Connecticut: the many CT locations in which the story unfolds.
This is a story that everyone should know -- and it is told beautifully in this engaging documentary.
An extraordinary book -- worth looking at for the photos alone, not to mention all the fascinating information here.
