Brilliant story-telling Feb 13, 2012
This novel will not dissappoint. It may open your eyes, cause you to gasp or even teach you a thing or two.Spiced with much Victorian "sauce" but not-at-all smutty or sleezy. It is intelligently written, for a reader who appreciates atmosphere and attention to detail. The characters are interesting, deceptive, strong, weak, troubled and ambitious and you will most definately want to hear more about them long after you've read the final page!!
