1.0 out of 5 stars Waste of time, 16 Mar. 2012
This review is from: The Secret Adventures of Charlotte Bronte (Hardcover)
This has to be one of the worst books I have ever read, which is disappointing as I have enjoyed her Sano Ichiro books. Once again an American writer trying to write historical English fiction gets it badly wrong. The plot becomes more and more preposterous, the dialogue is unbelievable, and the characters are stereotypical cardboard cutouts. Did she not do any factual research? If so, she would have found that the railway to Cornwall didn't exist until several years after this story. Her perception of Queen Victoria's household arrangements doesn't seem to tally with upper class life, more middle class. I get the feeling this is a case where the book was only published because she was already a successful author. I won't be wasting my money on finding out how bad the next book is.
