Reviews

It wasn't terrible, I think I was bored? even if the abbreviated title spells tits! I kept thinking about how mail-order spouse is like the juiciest idea. Alas, it wasn't as exciting as it had the potential to be. YMMV, though!

Annnnd a white man at one point lived with and "looks like" and sometimes "acts like" an Indigenous person and then he reintegrates into "civilized" society.

I'll always love the stunning cover, though. So that's something.

dnf - i may attempt to read this book again. I felt the language was so stiff - like reading the King James Bible.
