5.0 out of 5 stars Another good summer read, 22 July 2013
This review is from: The Spy Lover (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I have not read any of Ms Davenport's work before, but from what I have read this book, for me, it appears to have been well researched with lashings of action - added in there also is romance. The American Civil war is an area that I am not well versed in, but I was surprised by that South/Confederacy grew poppy fields. I knew that Chinese immigrants were used and abused while building railway lines in the 19th century in North America, and knew nothing about their involvement in the American Civil war. This book was very good and the characters were both well rounded and interesting, by the end of the book I was left me wanting to know more about Chinese immigrant experience in 19th and early 20th Century America as well more about the cultural and political dynamics of the Civil War.
