This is the second novel I've read by Sarah Waters--the first was Fingersmith--and I find her to be a master at weaving tales of deception. Like Fingersmith, the story is set in England in the Victorian age, where the strictures of society are very hard on women, and in particular women whose sexual desires do not fit the "norm." This story, however, could be quite depressing, and was certainly slower paced than Fingersmith, taking a little more time to develop the plot, but well worth the investment. That the lead character was ultimately deceived might have been predictable, but exactly how and who else was involved was not, and I find it very doubtful that other reviewers could have seen it. I also would have liked to know more about the sister-in-law and was uncertain in the end who "Peter" was in the story. However, my only real complaint about Waters is that she cannot seem to write and get her books published faster than I can devour them. I highly recommend her.

Although well-written and an engaging read, it was too depressing without any redemption. There seemed nothing to be gained from such depressing ending.

Another wonderfully written book from Waters based in the timeframe of upper-middle class Victorian England. Affinity's plot (albeit a liitle slow)developed well and its mix of present perception from Margarete's p.o.v along with past backstory written in the present tense from Selina's p.o.v was beautifully mixed together as journal entries and in living moments. Waters did an excelent job closing the book out. The twist at the end 'which some say was predictable-but not to me' was -without giving to much away- was'hard' to read. I won't say what happened to who but after finishing the book I know I felt like she should have written at least 100 pages more to continue the story on and to possibly hear that the character was able to come back from that traumatic experince. All in all a great summer read.

Sarah Waters is a master at writing surprising plot twists! At first the reader is carefully and quietly immersed in detailed characterization and mood. Then comes the Big Reveal ! Get a comfortable chair, warm comforter,and plenty of snacks because you will be reading far into the night !!!
