Wonderfully engaging and perfect for readers who love Victorian-style writing. Characters are not thrown together but built from the ground up. If you¿re looking for rapid fire reading, this book is not for you. If you want to know how a character grows, know the world they live in and feel utter sadness when the book concludes than you can¿t pick up a better book than Life Mask.

I highly recommend Life Mask to those that enjoy getting completely swept up in historical novels. The detail is amazing/ Though there are chapters that move rather slowly, all-in-all it is a fabulous novel.

waste of time.....too many characters and boring storyline. Couldn't get into this book, having tried three times to restart. It was a huge waste if time and money.

I loved 'Slammerkin.' I had such high hopes for 'Life Mask.' I was so disappointed. It was slow-moving and had characters I never cared enough about to find out what happened next. I never cared whether Eliza Farren and Lord Derby ever got to have a relationship. Most of the other characters were lifeless and transparent. I grew so bored with the story, I had a hard time keeping straight who was who!

Life Mask was an incredible novel to read from both a historical perspective, and a human one as well. It's set in the upper class of England, the beau mond, and watches as events unfold from the political drama of Whig vs Tory, and the French Revolution. For the characters of this story, friendship and scandal bring them together and apart again, asking demanding answers of loyalty and love.
