The Inheritance by Anne Allen
"This is one amazing book. Living in Guernsey I’ve both heard of Victor Hugo and Anne Allen but, when Allen decided to delve into the history of the writer of Les Mis the result was mind-bending. I’ve been left with the book hangover from hell, and..." Read more of this review »

“Books are a portable kind of time travel. We go back as well as forward when we read them. When we come back into the now, after being immersed in worlds previously unknown to us, we find ourselves, transformed. Touched by their magic, nothing we ever perceived beforehand remains quite the same.”
