A Beautiful Book,
This review is from: Ingenious Pain (Paperback)
I loved this book. It reminded me very much of Rose Tremain's Restoration in feel and genre. It is a fascinating study of a man out of his time who is both an alien and an outsider and yet has the ability to touch people when he himself cannot be touched.
It is profound, moving and exceptionally well written. It's a great historical novel, really getting into the time it is set in, and full of lovely details that shape your immersion as the reader into the work. It's melancholy and beautiful and I highly recommend it.
