Summary

I would like to make myself the heroine of this story and my character to be noble - an innocent victim led astray. But alas, sir, I would be lying....
Tully Truegood: orphan. Magician's apprentice. Whore.
In prison, accused of murder, Tully begins to write her life story. A story that takes her from a young daughter-skivvy in the back streets of 18th-century London to her stepmother Queenie's fairy house - a place where decadent excess is a must....
Trained by Queenie to become a courtesan and by Mr Crease, a magician who sees that Tully holds similar special powers to his own, together they make Tully the talk of the town.
But as Tully goes on a journey of sexual awakening, she falls in love with one of her clients, and the pleasure soon turns to pain. Especially when the estranged husband she was forced to marry by her father suddenly seeks her out. Now Tully is awaiting her trial for murder, for which she expects to hang...and her only chance of survival is to get her story to the one person who might be able to help her.

Loved this book!

What a treat, 18th century courtesans and magic. Who could ask for more? Certainly not I!

Almond for a parrot

Lovely book, well written and well narrated. The story is winding and intricate, couldn't stop listening. A well deserved 5 stars.
