Krimi & Mystery

On his death bed, Lord Pembroke took great care to try to ensure the future of his beautiful, unconventional niece, Lady Jane. Her debutante ball would feature the most eligible bachelors of London society. But when the night of the dance arrives, things do not go as planned.

To escape the superficial drama of the party, Jane seeks refuge in the garden of Rosewood Hall, where she discovers a gravely injured girl. With her last breath, the child beseeches Jane to find another girl, Mary, and to save her from the same fate she has suffered. Lady Jane vows to fulfill this final wish, a promise that will entangle her in a dangerous intrigue and take her from the safety of home to the hard streets of London. With the faded inscription in a tattered novel as her only physical clue, Jane sets out to investigate the region’s orphanages and infiltrate London’s most elegant homes. Can she save young Mary from a swiftly approaching doom?

    I don’t know how I came across this book, but it was on KU for both ebook and audio, so I decided to give it a go. I’m glad I did! What a veritable gem. Very well researched from what I can tell, and everything just fit: the historical context and conditions, the language, the characters and places.

    An absolutely great story, wonderfully narrated by Sue Pitkin. This book has it all, really. It’s both an historical novel and a mystery novel, the characters are believable.

    I had read a lot about poor- or workhouses, and orphanages in that era, not just through Charles Dickens, but generally. It is a topic that makes one shiver, and this novel is taking the horror of those times even farther (see wikipedia <b>after</b>you’ve read the book: […])

    I have to say that I’m impressed with the love for detail you can find in this story — but don’t get me wrong, it’s not detail as in a minute description of a dress or some-such. Just many small things the observant reader will notice, like the taste of apple pips.

    And now I’ll go and read the sequel. I do hope to discover more books by this author!
