As much as I enjoyed the book's predecessor, this sequel seemed like far too much of the same. Unfortunately too the "twists" along the way seemed far too apparent in most cases.
If Cox had wanted to continue the tale of Edward Glyver, I wish he had done so through the perspective of Edward himself rather than simply through his daughter and revealing (shock horror!) that he was indeed still alive at the end of the book.
Very English Victorian. Good plot, good substance to story, very prudish as English culture was in the 1800's. Includes romance, mystery, intregue and surprise coming together of story.
I loved both these books!! Excellent!
You wouldn't know this was written by a man. The narration by Esperanza Alice Gorst comes through as naturally and seamlessly as you would expect from a Victorian heroine. I loved this book. It slowly moved through the unveiling of the riddles one by one, while at the same time adding more to the plate. The whole tone was reminiscent of something Dickens might have written. Upstairs vs downstairs, secret letters, murders, mysterious stalkers, orphan children, plots, anonymous tips, aliases - just very delicious.
Fans of Michael Faber will enjoy this one! Gripping, whimsical and very Victorian!
