Publisher's Summary

January 1901, the day after Queen Victoria's death, two families visit neighouring graves in a London cemetery. The Waterhouses revere the late Queen and cling to Victorian traditions; the Colemans look forward to a more modern society. To their mutual distaste, however, the families are inextricably linked when their daughters become friends behind the tombstones. And worse....

Great audio

This was my idea of a perfect audio book.

The well-drawn characters each take turns to speak in the first person which keeps the gripping plot moving at a good pace. The historical period itself is exciting and I particularly like the way Chevalier portrays the immense sense of change in society at the beginning of the 20th century.

Falling Angels is my second Chevalier audio book, after Remarkable Creatures, and I am delighted to see several more also available on Audible.

back on form.

Any additional comments?

I didn't like the format in which this book is written. all the characters say their own piece in each chapter which makes it a bit disjointed but I stuck with it and it became really good when it got to the suffragette part of the story.
eve Matheson did a good job of performing the book bringing the characters to life.
