4.0 out of 5 stars Velvet continues to provide all the things that I love about historical fiction by Mary Hooper, 22 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Velvet (Paperback)
Velvet continues to provide all the things that I love about historical fiction by Mary Hooper; excellent writing, interesting characters and to chance to learn history in such a mesmerising and entertaining way.

The main focus of Velvet is on mediums that were so popular in the Victorian Era. Madame Savoya rescues Velvet by giving her work as an assistant, a great promotion considering where Velvet is at the beginning of the book. She moves into Madame Savoya house where she has a warm bed, good food and new clothes.

As Velvet learns more about mediums and Madame Savoya `art' it becomes clear that her saviour is not all she seems. For the first time I didn't love Mary Hooper protagonist, Velvet is an intelligent and capable young woman and I liked her but didn't care as much about her as I wanted.

I would have happily read Velvet in one sitting (unfortunately I couldn't), the story is well paced and really really interesting so it's very hard to put the book down before the end. Enjoy!
