I totally found this by accident but I'm so glad I did, what a weird little gem of a story :)

This tale set at the time of the great plague of London in 1665 is a tad bit drawn out. The plot is alright, its rather interesting actually, but maybe it should have been a bit shorter.
The fantasy/occult/historical fiction tale starts with Sir Norman Kingsley being told about a mystique La Masque, he ends up visiting her and soon certain visions experienced whilst in her presence come to life...
But how can a woman assumed dead come to life, and how can such a dead one suddenly disappear...
A popular Victorian era romance, predictable at times to a modern reader and not very shocking (as it was meant to be), it still entertained for the most part. A good read for the language and to connect back to 1876. Though the tale is of a young knight during the plague of London of 1665, the narrator intrudes quite a bit and inserts asides to her contemporary readers. It's a quick read, though tedious at times due to lots of repetition, it's still worth it, probably.

This book is weird. The strangest characters. I think it's historical romance, but reads as a grotesque fantasy set in time of th great plague! YUK
A ripping yarn!
