Madison House A NovelHe city decides to re grade Denny Hill and the fate of Madison House hangs in the balance Clyde Hunssler Maddie’s albino handyman and furtive love interest; James Colter a muckraking black journalist who owns and publishes the Seattle Sentry newspaper; and Chiridah Sim I can't recommend this book to anyone except hardcore Seattle history buffs The only reason I didn't uit halfway through was because of an interest in Seattle history but I could have sated that interest in a far efficient manner by choosing non fiction Mainly the characters felt one dimensional Though the author imbued them with backstories and some inner motivation I rarely felt moved by the progress of their lives I even skipped most of the Alaska gold rush back story as it didn't seem relevant and it slimmed a 500 page novel to about 440 pages I did learn about the regrading of Denny hill and other aspects of Seattle at the turn of the century but there are surely better reads for that
