Persuasive historical drama unfolds in Galveston: 1900, Indignities, (Book One: The Arrival) by author N.E. Brown, as she commendably peels back the veneer of time and place to deliver an enthralling tale. An intriguing and soulful incarnation of the period which is captured with notable flair, a scrupulous eye for detail being ever present. It is evident in the intricacy of her plot, but never more so than the vim with which she imbues her characters. All of which are well observed and ably developed within the context of her engrossing tale. It's a compelling read that courts dark overtures, with a number of harrowing scenes. Not overtly graphic, but certainly memorable, with some unique and inspired twists which are sure to keep readers hooked to the very last page.
