Alice I Have Been by Melanie Benjamin

Alice I Have Been: A Novel - Melanie Benjamin

I liked the premise of this book, but it was just dull and tedious. I couldn't really finish it because it didn't hold my interest at all. 

 

Note: I received an advanced reading copy of this from the publisher.
