The Wives of Henry Oades by Johanna Moran

The Wives of Henry Oades: A Novel (Random House Reader's Circle) - Johanna Moran

Dull. The writing wasn't that great, especially since it didn't feel like this was something happening in 1890 and the years following. It was barely historical fiction and felt more like generic chick lit, with a very loose story that didn't really keep my interest at all.
