This week I’m reading: Fingersmith by Sarah Waters

Although I have often seen her books on shelves and in the windows of bookshops, this is the first Sarah Waters book that I’ve ever read.

Now that I’ve devoured Fingersmith, I wonder what took me so long to sample Waters’ work?

Clocking in at just under a whopping 550 pages, this is no quick read. It demands your full attention, but it is easy to give it, because the writing is so captivating and vivid.

Fingersmith is a tale of betrayal, fraud, secrets and lies, set in Victorian London. It’s richly atmospheric with enough twists and turns to keep the reader engaged until the very end.

I will be reading more of Waters’ books from now on.

Here’s the blurb on the back:
