It was very well written and definitely had strong Victorian elements. The thought less clerk spurring a vengeful murder attempt and the lost child rediscovered by chance with a friendly poor person were pure Dickens. Even the quirky female characters were not too different from Wilkie Collin's heroines.Of course the explicit sex scenes and adultery were not as openly discussed in your average victorian work. I'm hard pressed to say why I'm not giving it more stars, it was an exploration of love in so many different forms that, to a certain extent , worked. I think the Victorian format left me wanting a more black and white story with an outright happy ending… (mere)

Beautifully written, a joy to read, but the story rambled, went on unexplained side trips and petered out. There was some interesting tension building between science and religion, belief and proof, progress and conservationism but it was abandoned.

The beginning was intriguing but then the story went to a weird place. After the focus shifted to a mythical creature and a love triangle, I started losing interest. I was hoping more of the story was going to focus on Cora Seaborne's interest in science and quest for independence during the Victorian era.

Quite beautiful writing. Evocative. Rebuilding the whole Victorian world for me without seeming precious.
