Plot-wise and character-wise, it is definitely a tree-star novel, but historical fiction is also appreciated for its attention to detail and the reproduction of a certain age, manners, zeitgeist, and this novel is a good example of historical fiction and research, plus some citations, linguistic investigation and analysis, so four stars, even though it is definitely a stretch! Three and a half!
