The Brass Compass: A Novel by Ellen Butler – Review by Maura Harper

The Brass CompassThe Brass Compass by Ellen Butler
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I am typically not a fan of historical fiction. I became a fan of this author’s writing when I read her book about a museum heist so knew I was in for a ride with this book.

THE BRASS COMPASS features a strong female protagonist who goes through many things in her quest. There are a lot of layers in this interesting story. It is a history lesson, a lesson in humanity, a travel journal and a spy thriller. If the dates and locations changed, it could also be a look into our future.

This book has a slower pace, told in past and present time frame, and has enough information withheld to make it a decent mystery about certain things. It certainly held my interest as I was turning the pages.

I absolutely recommend this book.
