Complex and masterful, Fingersmith, should be one everyone’s reading list – not only women who love women, but for anyone who enjoys a well-thought-out and elegantly written tale of deceit and come-uppance with a huge dollop of romance in it.Read full review @https://www.bestlesficreviews.com/2019/0...

My Journey to Become Pretentiously Literate

I want to give this story more than three and a half stars but hand on my heart, I just can't.

But this is far more than a...

So let me just say that there are a lot of awesome twist and turns throughout the book, which kept me on the edge of my s...
