I rarely enjoy when modern authors make use of their predecessors creations. At least Faye manages to both honor the original and put her own stamp on the stories

Very well written. Fleshed out characters and well thought out plot with nice historical details. *****
Spoiler alert****** I was a bit upset that she decided to have her admirable leading female character prostitute herself. Maybe it is some sort of feminist twist that in a repressive society, where you can’t control anything, selling your body is some sort of admirable act of defiance, but I don’t buy it

I liked this Jane eyre related novel much better than I usually like books with connections to classic novels. It was a wise decision to have a completely different set of characters and only follow the general arc and tenor of the novel

A well written historical mystery. Clever plot twists at the end. Characters that were engaging. Yet... The writing wasn't jiving with me. It was good, and I could see many really enjoying her descriptive use of language, but it just didn't wring a perfect tone with me. Still... I will probably read the next in the series. Very good.
