REVIEWS

"A sexy, bravura novel... wildly entertaining" ― New York Times

"When a book is this big, it had better be good - this one is. Dive in. Enjoy!" -- Alice Sebold

"Owes as much to John Fowles as it does to Charlotte Bronte. Which is to say that the book is both mind-bogglingly clever and page-turningly tempting. Don't miss it" ― Daily Telegraph

"An astonishing narrative sweep that encompasses Victorian society in all its colourful variety, it peels away the surface gentility and brings its world to vivid life. It's a feast for all five senses and in spite of its weight, it's impossible to put down." -- Val McDermid

"Key to its success is the book's sly acknowledgment of its modernity without recourse to taking up the crude cudgels of irony . . . a sybaritic pleasure and a ripping yarn." ― Times

"Owes as much to John Fowles as it does to Charlotte Brontë. Which is to say that the book is both mind-bogglingly clever and page-turningly tempting. Don't miss it." ― Daily Telegraph
