Many books written in a vernacular are challenging to read but this one was especially difficult . I just didn't like the story or how it was written. I checked it out twice and put it down both times.

This is definitely a "best read." An unusual historical novel set from many points of view as the characters reveal their motivations and their cultural biases.
