The representative artwork shows many cultures and many phenomenal women changing the world. It’s inspiring and up lifting. The Drawings are a feature of their own, which could be used in 4th grade to enhance presentations of historical figures.
I could see this in a library or even lower elementary school classrooms, inspiring girls.
I only gave a four-star because I felt that at times, it was too verbose. I don’t read this genre very often, so perhaps this is standard practice.
Anyway, history does come alive in the telling of the story. Thanks for a great read
This was another book that was so hyped that I truly wondered if it could possibly meet expectations. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that it didn’t just meet expectations, it exceeded them. The author did an absolutely amazing job creating a world full of history and cultures that you can’t help but find yourself fully immersed in. Even when you only knew Roman as Iris’s rival, the one person who could keep her from achieving her goal, I couldn’t hate him. He still had integrity. Ross completely put my heart through the wringer with everything Iris and Roman went through as they grew from rivals to friends to lovers. There is just so much I could say about this book but most of them would involve spoilers. I literally lost sleep because I was so immersed in this story and Divine Vows really can’t come out soon enough.
