A Goddess Among Men is a work of fiction in the family saga and interpersonal drama sub-genres and was penned by author Daniel Davidsohn. Set in varying and juxtaposing landscapes, from the wilds of the Amazon rainforest to the cut-throat world of high society in New York, this is a drama like no other. Our central figure is Christel, who is raised by one half of an incredible duo of men who build an empire out of a chance meeting in the Amazon in 1907. Growing up as an heiress is harder than it seems, and when it is Christel’s turn to face the results of the deeds of the men who raised her, a lifechanging choice awaits.
Readers who enjoy literary-style writing, but with all the turns and twists of a full drama plot are certain to devour this lavish and exciting work by author Daniel Davidsohn. One of the most impressive elements for me was the character development of Christel herself, who could so easily have followed the tropes of a typical beautiful lead female, but has several layers of depth and emotional heartache that she works through as the novel unfolds. The plot is revealed at a great pace to maintain intrigue for the sins of the past, but it also has plenty of surprises and revealing interactions along the way that astute fans will pick up on. Overall, A Goddess Among Men is a very enjoyable work and is not to be missed by fans of high-quality writing and accomplished drama.
