[A] wonderfully inventive novel set in 18th-century England. As the heroine and narrator Red seeks the truth about her origins and possible connection to the wealthy De Lacy family, the reader’s expectations are constantly confounded with one twist in her tale after another
This rich, complex and haunting Dickensian epic is a triumph of the Gothic genre . . . a masterpiece
A sweeping Dickensian tour de force of a novel . . . cementing the author’s place as the queen of modern Georgian literature
A sprawling, exquisite, outright triumph . . . I doubt I’ll read a better book this year
