She has the unmistakable whiff of success
In The Girl from Paris Joan Aiken blends elements of Villette, George Eliot and Thomas Hardy into a strong redemptive plot
One of those authentic storytellers who can make you gasp
Aiken fans will find this a lively smorgasbord of un-frilly period entanglements, with its feminist resonances, no-nonsense tone and offbeat panache
