The Cassandra by Sharma Shields


I liked the set up of this a lot: Central Washington, WWII, a little bit of a fantasy element with the Cassandra myth. I was really impressed at how well the author located her work in local and global history. And Mildred's voice I think really worked for most of the story. However, the conclusion was pretty rushed, which I think made the overall impact of what she was doing less than it could have been.
