I read this for our Cobb County Library book club. I was nervous about reading this book in the beginning. I struggled with comprehending it at first. After starting the book over a few times, I finally got there. This isn’t because the book itself was bad or poorly written. It’s just that I sometimes struggle with comprehending things that don’t hit me right away. Once I did get into it, I enjoyed the book very much. I felt a deep empathy for Belle. Even more so after I found out that this story was based on a real person. I took the time to read the authors’ notes in the back of the book as well. These two authors put in a lot of time and research into this story, and it definitely shows. I actually want to do research on Belle da Costa Greene and H.P. Morgan. I’d also love to do more research on Morgan’s daughter, Anne. I recommend this book. I also want to read other books by these authors.
