Book Review of Circling the Sun: A Novel

Circling the Sun: A Novel
Helpful Score: 1

I was so pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed this book. It had been sitting on my 'to be read' shelf for a while. What a beautifully written historical novel. It not only made me 'feel' right there and in the period it was portrayed in, but as a woman it was wonderfully insightful into how a woman of the period would feel. Just really a very nice read. I did find myself wondering if men would find it such a great book as a female reader would. The characters were all wonderful and bold and believable.
