"The Sinner's Kiss" is a beautifully written novel. Stylistically it is similar to a nineteenth century novel; however, the plot resonates with a modern tone. It is truly remarkable that a writer of Clarke's age is capable of writing in the style of a bygone era. Although, parts of "The Sinner's Kiss" are overtly melodramatic, but it must be pointed out that what the novelist is trying to achieve is a blending of the nineteenth century prose with that of twenty-first century viewpoint with regards to issues such female rights.
