Laura Joh Rowland's San Ichiro novels have enthralled thousands of readers. Now the author turns her gift for historical fiction to Victorian England and the famous and fascinating Brontë family with this critically acclaimed new thriller.

Upon learning that she has been falsely accused of plagiarism, the normally mild mannered Charlotte Brontë sets off for London to clear her name. But when she unintentionally witnesses a murder, Charlotte finds herself embroiled in a dangerous chain of events that forces her to confront demons from her past.

With the clandestine aid of the other Brontë sisters, Emily and Anne and of the suspiciously well informed but irresistibly attractive brother of the victim, Charlotte works to unravel a deadly web of intrigue that threatens not only her own safety but that of her family and her country.

As the adventure leads her from the peaceful Yorkshire moors to the crime infested streets of London to the opium clouded ports of Canton in China, Rowland's Charlotte lures readers into a fast paced and vividly imagined romp through Victorian history.

A surprise gem


I know this has been slammed by a number of readers but I really enjoyed it. It's not realistic and should be taken for what it is - a rollicking story. I loved the style of writing, giving it a 19th century feel, commensurate with the time period. I'll definitely be passing this one around to see what others think.
