Review: A Ballad of Love and Glory

A Ballad of Love and Glory
A Ballad of Love and Glory by Reyna Grande
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

3.5 stars

I really enjoyed reading about a part of history I knew absolutely nothing about. This is about a nurse and an Irish deserter during the Mexican-American War. It recounts the suffering of the Mexicans and the horrible ways in which American soldiers treated the Irish (and other immigrant soldiers.)

I felt that the character development and writing could have been deeper. The subject matter was harrowing and eye opening and the history itself made the book completely worthwhile to read.

with gratitude to edelweiss and Atria Books for an advanced copy in exchange for an honest review.
