Heartwarming and brilliant! A wintry historical romance perfect for fans of Sarah MacLean and Olivia Waite. Realistic stakes paired with rigid class boundaries set the stage for a bluestocking women's suffragist and a noble Tory political strategist to fall hopelessly in love.
I love listening to audiobooks whilst cleaning and was really enjoying this one while doing the dishes. There is a twist midway through Fingersmith that made me gasp and throw my hands up, dropping and shattering the dish I was holding. It's still one of my favorite moments from one of my favorite authors and preeminent Neo-Victorian writer, the great Sarah Waters. Please read anything she has written. Just don't hold onto anything fragile.
