The Red Daughter (by John Burnham Schwartz) … slow historical fiction with little fact

I am a huge fan of historical fiction and have grown to love books of varying times in the past.  My problem with this book is that it was so slow.  While being based on Svetlana’s journal, I think there should have been focus on more interesting matters.

I appreciated the fact that the author notes at the end admits how much of the book was fiction.  Yes, it’s historical fiction, but I would expect there to be more historical fact that fiction!

Thank you to NetGalley and Random House for my advanced review copy.  All opinions and thoughts are my own.
