Boy did I get the end of this book wrong in my mind. Great ending, very emotional. What a fascinating look into the life of the woman Alice in Wonderland was written for. Was Lewis Carroll a bit too eager to be with children? Was Alice taken advantage of or not? What really happened between the the two on a lovely summer day that made them break off their relationship which had meant everything to the both of them. So many questions in the book, I just had to keep reading it. Based on real people, a very good historical novel that transports you into Victorian England and up through the heart break of WWI. I really enjoyed this book.
