The description of the influenza epidemic was riveting. I appreciated that the heroine was steeped in the mores of the early 20th century rather than having a 21st century sensibility transposed into that time. As a long time Clevelander I found the local setting of interest and the trip to Halle's Department store when the character goes on a shopping spree for the first time in her life was fascinating. Once she got to Egypt and the romantic entanglements began I somewhat lost interest and did not listen to the end of the story. However, I don't doubt that it continued to be well written to the end. I may finish it later.
