by Sarah Waters

This is a really enjoyable book to read. The synopsis on the book jacket didn't really appeal to me, but once I got started I couldn't put it down. A great piece of story telling and I was hooked right until the end.


I watched him hard. I also watched her. She would look sometimes at his face; more often at the ground; now and then at some flower or leaf or fluttering bird that took her fancy. And when she did that he would half turn, and catch my eye, and give a devilish kind of smile; but by the time she gazed at him his face would be smooth.

You would swear, seeing him then, that he loved her.

You would swear, seeing her, that she loved him.
