Jo Walton
Lent Cover



This book is a tough one to review. The first half of the book is an interesting but dry account of a strange Dominican priest in the late 1400s. Then the second half plays on the trope of "Groundhog Day". But to say much more gives away the genius that is Jo Walton. I didn't think I'd rate this book this high as I was reading on it, but reflecting on it, I have to say this book is smart, well thought-out, and well-executed. It's just getting through the first half that's difficult. This book was nominated for a 2020 Mythopoeic Award (the winner has not yet been announced as of this writing).
