When I first selected this book, the synopsis of the story had me interested. Mary Handley is a woman of the 10th century who bows down to no one. She has her own set of ideas that don’t necessarily conform to the ideology of the time period. She’s dreamed of a life other than working in a sweatshop all her life, and her chance to become a member of the police form is offered to her.
Mary Handley is an odd character. You can’t help but like her, her spunk, her tenacity. You understand why the guys on the police force are irritated with her. Then you are thrown characters in the book like Tesla, Edison, J.P. Morgan and Westinghouse and it makes me want to go in and read about these men. Read their biographies and who they really are.
All in all, the story was good. There were some areas where character development wasn’t very strong, but the story in itself was good. It was most definitely not something that would be considered best book of all time, but I could see myself picking up the book in the future to read again.
I received this book from Blogging for Books in exchange for an honest review.
