What other readers are saying about this title:
librarylover said:
Though it took me about four years to get around to reading this novel, I don’t recommend the rest of you wait that long. But be prepared, Emma Donohue is a strong writer, writing about a difficult life in a difficult, hard time, and she doesn’t pretty up the life a prostitute in 18th century England leads. It seems like she took a vision journey herself, back in time, and came back and wrote what she saw, the atmosphere she renders is that riveting. A fascinating, gripping novel.
