The Saints of Swallow Hill (by Donna Everthart) … too much detail of sexual relationships

I have enjoyed previous books by this author so I was looking forward to reading this one. I was very disappointed when I got involved in the story. While information about turpentine production and how North Carolina ended up being known as the Tar Heel State was interesting, the amount … and detailed descriptions … of sexual relationships was too much for me to stomach. This was a slow read and it just plodded along which did not keep my interest. There are plenty of 4- and 5-star reviews, so this book might appeal to you.

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