The Vengeance of Mothers provides a glimpse into a very interesting yet brutal time in American history. I felt that the author handled the subject well and does an excellent job creating characters that are unique and compelling. The emotions that the women feel, while being as varied as the characters themselves, are well translated in writing and you experience their feelings as if they are your own. I definitely enjoyed the book, but I did feel the ending left me slightly underwhelmed. That being said, the novel is still one I would recommend and that was well worth the read.
I received this book courtesy of St. Martin's Press through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
