Sweet Mercy by Ann Tatlock
This is a story that takes the reader into the era of Prohibition and shows several aspects of that time. There are a variety of characters, some more interesting than others. I honestly don't know enough to tell you if it is historically accurate, but it does open some topics of the time to review. To me it was just an interesting fiction story. It did not grab my attention particularly, but it was not a difficult book to read. It was a nice easy fictional story, in my estimation.
So, would I recommend it? Sure, it's a fine book to read. It wasn't particularly moving or dramatic, but not every story has to be. It was not an objectionable story -- if you like historical fiction you may love this one!
I received a copy of this book from the publisher for the purpose of this review. I was not required to write a positive review.
