Excellent re-imagining of a classic.
I enjoyed "All the Ever Afters." As a historical fiction it is believable and enjoyable. Scenes are well depicted and the characters interesting. I assume that this book would resonate especially well with women as it addresses issues and predicament uniquely imposed upon female folks. As the protagonist, Agnes, is so likable (because of her determination to live and her ingenuity) in the first half, the second half--SPOILER ALERT--was a bit hard because her mortal limitations come through. But all that human imperfections of the characters make this story all the more convincing and serve as a food for thought whose taste lingers long after having finished reading.
