Slow, slow read. Then all of a sudden in the last 75-100 pages, unrealistic drama occurs. Don’t waste your money. Jake should stick to the news.

This book had lots of interesting material with which to work, but the writing and character development were almost painful to read. He is a non historian trying to fit in every historical fact he knows without developing a continuity of story telling. The characters are superficial. Margaret is a professional woman who is rescued out of the blue literally in midstream by her husband who is supposed to be states away; he swoops into the ocean to rescue her and a pony.
Jake please keep the fiction coming.
Really well done.
