Wow! What did I read?
Let me tell you something. This book was absolutely brilliant. I haven’t read much of historical fiction and had no idea what to expect. However, I’m glad that I did read it.
The story was unique and beautifully written. A complete package with a dose of humor, sarcasm, a portion of wittiness, history, feminism(I’m not a feminist, but I adored Lilly), mysterious men, crime and what not.
Not some typical romance novel(even though I was expecting it to be, but no no. I was wrong). There were so many twists and turns, which I didn’t expect. However, at times things were quiet predictable and I knew where things were going. The writer put a lot of efforts on even small details, I really liked that.
There was this particular scene when Lilly and Mr. Ambrose went to east end of London and the description of people and crime around that area made me remember Jack The Ripper case from 1888. That was weird for me because I started thinking about that.
I liked the characters, I loved the writing and the story turned out to be really good. Now what else you need?
I can only say Lilly and that son of a bachelor, Mr. Ambrose, made this story so so much better. I loved their arguments, all the time they spent together and their adventures.
I adored Lilly and I loved Mr. Ambrose.
It was very hard for me to put this book down, and I’m eagerly waiting for next installment.
So did I love this book?
