    " Read at least 10 years ago but a forever favorite! "

    " 900 pages of descriptive narrative of what life was like in Victorian England told from the perspective of Miss Sugar, a prostitute who becomes the mistress of and then a governess in the household of Mr. William Rackham, a loutish perfume magnate. It is difficult to tell from the author's descriptions of the manners and mores of the various characters presented just who exactly are the true "ladies and gentlemen" of English society. "

    " Fascinating, 21st century candour and 19th century prudishness brought together through the behaviour of men and the women of the sex trade. Not my favourite type of book, I couldn't relate to any of the characters, not one really appealing personality, but I read every page. "

    " Oh, so amazing. So meta-fictional. So good at conjuring up at the past. However, it doesn't get full marks because of the incredibly unsatisfying ending. Don't tease us with the lack of any conclusion whatsoever! It ends in mid-chase! No! That is not allowed! Although it does leave the door wide open for a sequel, but I can't wait that long... "
