Review from
I admired the story of one of the characters. Being from a humble background (a single parent family, whose mother worked as a fortune teller in the streets), he studied his way out of poverty to be a respected surgeon in New Orleans. This was my biggest takeaway from the book – how education can remove one from obscure poverty to place them in high society. What I did not like about the story, was how the women in the story were depicted. In that, more than one woman had been positioned in a marriage for social acceptance and advancement. All that being said I rate the book 4 out of 4 stars.
