Dreamers of the Day - Mary Doria Russell

Dreamers of the Day: A Novel Dreamers of the Day: A Novel by Mary Doria Russell

My review

rating: 4 of 5 stars
The Sparrow and Children of God are two of my favorite books, so I always look forward to a new book by the author. This book was very interesting and describes the forming of the treating that created modern day Iraq.

There are interesting insights about Winston Churchill and Lawrence of Arabia. Gertrude Bell was instrumental in the forming of the treaty and I look forward to reading more about her. I'm adding The Desert Queen to my To-Read list. It was recommended as a must read biography of her.
