“The books that the world calls immoral are books that show the world its own shame.”
Bonus points for being based on a true story. I didnt realize that this was an actual unsolved historical mystery until I was done with the book. Knowing that this was based on a true story made me appreciate the characters so much more. I love reading about progressive, independent women, and even more so when they its based in truth. Such an interesting portrayal of a woman balancing religion and science, her traditional duties and progressive ideals.
