Amazing story of a woman who transgresses the status quo to forge another path. Hannah Cullwick is my new shiny toy that I'm obessed with....however this book is badly written....long, blabbing sentences yet over simplified. This is strange enough to be fiction....but it's not.

Worth a look for the history, and certainly good for the narrative if you like this sort of slightly sordid relationship stuff.
