I spent the last week banging through William Martin’s Back Bay book. This historical fiction story was based right in my neighborhood. Boston’s cool people! There were many plot twists, and with that said, I think the book could have been about 100 pages shorter. It was a “rip-roaring page turner” as the Boston Globe described, but I found that there were too many characters to keep track of. I guess that is why Martin put an extended family tree in the front of the book.
I have no idea what I’m going to read next. Maybe I’ll take a breather to work on editing my book and take some notes for the future book.
If you’re interested in historical fiction books, try Martin’s latest book The Lincoln Letter. Less twists, better read.
