This book is exciting and frightening, touching and macabre. I sped through it wishing it were longer. Just a very good adventure story occurring in an exceedingly well-imagined nineteenth-century New England focusing on a compelling and resourceful protagonist. The prose is straightforward and driving. The plotting is clever but not overly contrived. It reminded me of Gothic romances and 100-year-old adventure stories and Margaret Atwood when she's being a little morbid. I loved every page.
