Marge Piercy

Marge Piercy obviously did a boatload of research for this novel. Unfortunately, that didn’t result in a good novel. Although there were only six main characters, it seemed like a lot more, and their lack of interaction or relation to each other was confusing. I wanted to know more about the events leading up to the French Revolution, but I’ll try Hilary Mantel to learn what I want to know.
