This story is so true about couples even today, relationships seldom go on a straight line. The journey of any couple has ups and downs.

I just loved this book so much that it makes me swoony. IMPOSSIBLE SAINTS reminded me in some ways of Adam's Rib, one of my favorite Tracy-Hepburn films, only set in Edwardian England with a priest and a suffragette. While Paul and Lilia's prickly slow-burn romance kept me turning the pages, I especially appreciated IMPOSSIBLE SAINTS' deep world-building. I'd read that Harwood had spent twenty years writing this novel, and it shows—she has a real sense of intimacy with her characters, which can only come from taking the time to develop them fully and understanding the historical context in which they inhabit. Most of all, I was very moved by Harwood's richly detailed portrayal of the early suffragette movement, and reminded anew of the steep sacrifices first wave feminists made to ensure the rights so many of us enjoy today. I'm excited Harwood will be expanding the world she created with her next novel BEAR NO MALICE, which will focus on an important secondary character from IMPOSSIBLE SAINTS. Here's hoping Paul and Lilia will have a cameo in it!
