Book Review Of “Bethlehem” By Karen Kelly @StMartinsPress
Thank you St. Martins Press, and Netgalley for gifting me an E-Arc Of this book in exchange of an honest review. All opinions are my own.
I rate this book a 3.5 out of 5 Stars.
This cover was stunning, and I love the premise. While it may have been slightly predictable, I still really enjoyed the story. I found it to be very timeless, this is the kind of story that people won’t tire of hearing. Does that make sense?
I loved the rich, detailed writing, and the emotions that it evoked from me, I was really pulling for Joanna, I found myself really drawn to her character. I loved the time period, and the descriptions of the city, the clothes, the atmosphere.
A downside that I can see is, there were a lot of characters, almost too many to keep track of, and at some points it did become somewhat of a slow read. But other than that, I did enjoy the book.
