    Many thanks to NetGalley and Simon Schuster for this evocative and atmospheric historical novel Told in lush prose it captures the artistry and vivid colours of the controversial Pre Raphaelite movement, and artistic and romantic passion It also places us into the filth, poverty, vice, and reeking squalor of London in the mid 1800s Foremost in the story is the delusion and deranged obsession of a twisted mind It is astonishing that this gothic flavoured story is the author s debut nove Many thanks to NetGalley and Simon Schuster for this evocative and atmos...
