5.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully written well researched book set in Victorian Britain., 29 Nov. 2011
This review is from: Fallen Grace (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The story is about two sisters; Grace and Lily Pearce. Grace has to care for her elder sister Lily who is mentally challenged and unable to look after herself responsibly. The sister's mother died when they were young and their father emigrated to seek his fortune not knowing that his wife was pregnant with their second daughter.
The young sisters have to fend for themselves in unforgiving Victorian England.

The author has developed the story around the unscrupulous nature of the Victorian funeral trade and the dire needs and terrible conditions suffered by the poor in Victorian London. It makes you want to cry that such things were actually allowed to happen, especially to the children.

This is a wonderfully intriguing story cleverly written and well researched. I couldn't put it down.
