I just finished reading Fingersmith over the weekend.
Set in Dickensian London, Fingersmith follows the story of two orphan girls whose lives are intertwined. Full of villains, pickpockets, prisons, asylums, and gothic twists and turns, this was a delightful read.
The writing is wonderful, and the story is riveting. I found that it took me the first fifteen pages to really get into it, but after that I honestly could not put it down!
