Publisher's Summary

Henry Chester, a domineering and puritanical Victorian artist, is in search of the perfect model. In nine-year-old Effie he finds her. Ten years later, lovely, childlike and sedated, Effie seems the ideal wife. But something inside her is about to awaken. Drawn by her lover, Mose, into a dangerous underworld of intrigue and blackmail, she meets Fanny Miller, the brothel-keeper, and her shadowy daughter, Marta, murdered ten years ago on the day of Henry's weekly visit. And as friendship becomes possession and Henry's secret past is revealed, Effie and Marta plan their revenge together.

Dark, spooky and gripping

A Victorian thriller type. Again, Joanne Harris starts off her novel quietly and it's even almost a little boring. But, as the plot thickens, it becomes un-put-downable. Not exactly a happy ending, but a just one!! I thought Chocolat was my favourite book, but this has taken it's place. It's just so different!!Read this and you'll be left thinking!!
