The Ninth Wife - Amy Stolls 3 stars - great read in a wonderful voice but was slightly lacking in story.The author paints a beautiful picture but glosses over the entire romance. The 'gasp' moment regarding Bess (not Bess and Rory) was less a 'gasp' for me and more a 'yeah, I figured that out fifteen chapters ago'. The characterizations were strong and steady, the flow lovely and overall I liked the book. I just wish we had gotten to see more of Bess and Rory together to understand what tied her so strongly to a man with his history.
