really liked it
Read in August, 2009

A book about the true horrors of being a woman with no prospects in the early twentieth century. I read it in a day and felt horribly depressed afterwards, but it's impossible to put down. Julia's desperation is sickening, and you find yourself almost wishing she would give up, but the fact that she doesn't is all the more terrifying. Possibly my favorite Rhys.
