In response to Recommending Historical novels, written by Joyce E. on August 24, 1998 at 00:38:08
This is an absolutely extraordinary and absorbing book, taking place in England and London during a somewhat later time frame than Jane writes about. The historical detail is exquisite and, as literature, it's a very powerful and affecting story. I can't even begin to describe this complex book in a little post like this, but if you like Jane or Dickens you'll love this one, trust me.
