VERY good!!! The start had me worried (for Harriet) but she was the best one off, at the end I think. Well interwoven plot, I don't no how anyone thinks these books up!!

This book is quite entertaining. I was riveted all the way through to the end. Sally Lockhart is definitely unconventional during the Victorian Era. I mean, giving birth out of wedlock, sex before marriage...scandalous! Fun read for sure!
