Once again Davis Bunn has challenged my preconceived notions about a specific genre. I enjoyed his book, The Pilgrim, so I wanted to follow up with The Fragment. Prior to reading these books, I was quick to stay away from Historical Fiction. But Mr. Dunn does his homework and I don’t feel like I’m studying a history lesson or wonder if that’s how it really was. As is typical of this author, I dive into the story, get lost in the characters, and only come up for air when I have to.
I especially like the strength of the story’s leading woman, Muriel. She’s intelligent without being arrogant or pretentious. She is educated and real, and remains true to the convictions of her faith.
As for the villain…I sure didn’t see that coming!
If I have any complaints about this story it is that it ended too quickly and too soon.
When I reviewed this book on Amazon, I was stumped for a title. Then it came to me: No Fragments Here–This One is the Whole Package. And it is. I so thoroughly enjoyed the characters, I really do hope there’s more about them in the future.
I received a copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review.
