's review

really liked it

Thank you to Netgalley and Head of Zeus for providing me with a kindle version of this book!

Set in Victorian London, Birdie is wrongly implicated in the murder of a man found dumped on the shores of the Thames. To clear her name, Birdie must travel to Orkney in the far north and attempt to retrace the dead man's footsteps.

This is a very atmospheric book and really transports you to some dark, damp and cold places! I have been reading this during the southern hemisphere winter and can really picture the scenes in this book.

The storyline is interesting and moves along at a good pace, however I do admit to getting a little lost in the storyline at times, as there is a lot going on! Not too much that you can't figure it out though.

I loved the female characters in this - Birdie, Margaret and Morag. All three are strong characters in their own unique way and I enjoyed what each character brought to the story.

Overall this is a great ambient story that is perfect for winter reading.
