One Glorious Ambition
When I first picked up One Glorious Ambition by Jane Kirkpatrick, I didn't expect too much from it. It's not the usual genre of book I enjoy, so I was uncertain how much I would enjoy the story. However, I found myself sucked in to the story of Dorothea Dix. The author did a good job of turning a true story into an "inspired by" novel - not an easy task that many don't do well. I will say that parts of the storyline dragged a bit and went a little slow, but overall the storyline was engaging and page turning, in spite of the few rougher spots. I definitely recommend this book to anyone who likes historical fiction. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
