An intriguing take on life in the19th century
What made the experience of listening to The Liar's Daughter the most enjoyable?
I have read about Nelson's life, the Victory and his death. This story brought a whole new perspective to Nelson the man. Then there is the huge contrast with the Crimean war, only a decade or so later. It is almost two books in one.
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Liar's Daughter?
The meeting between mother and daughter in the horrors of the Crimea.
What does Rebecca Egan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
The storytellers change (from mother to daughter). The use of different tones of voice mean one always knows who is telling which part of the story.
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I was stunned by the imagination that linked seemingly disparate storylines, but with a very sure thread.
Any additional comments?
I enjoyed the concept behind the book as much as the story itself. I like historical novels that are set within actual events.
