Finished An Extraordinary Union”. Meh.

The book’s strength was in how it reminded us of the plight–the drudgery and despair–of slaves in the South. Those glimpses of what slaves had to endure from day to day were interesting to me.

But the romance didn’t grab me, for some reason. Also, the grammar and other mistakes were too noticeable to ignore. Here are two more to add to my previous post:

“…he smiled and curtsied…” (Yes, that’s the hero who is curtseying to his dance partner.)
“He’d been tempted to name some exorbitant amount, but that would have ringed false.”

So, okay read for me, due to the setting. Otherwise, nothing special. YMMV
