I wouldn’t have picked this book up from the cover, given the harsh expression on the woman’s face; but then – apart from a few notable exceptions like the Mona Lisa – portraits from centuries past, be they painted, sketched or photographed, are mostly formal with the subjects wearing stern expressions, so what does it matter that I think the woman looks unappealing? What’s important – especially since once you’re reading an ebook, you never see the cover – is what’s inside the book, and in this case, I found the contents surprisingly good given my initial expectations.
This is a brief review, less than 5 minutes, and it includes some hints for authors attempting to write historical fiction.
