Amazon Editorial Review
London, 1838: the controversial practice of Mesmerism, with its genuine practitioners and its fraudulent chancers, has hypnotised the city. Miss Cordelia Preston, a beautiful, ageing, out-of-work actress terrified of returning to the poverty of her childhood, suddenly emerges as a Lady Phreno-Mesmerist. In her candle-lit Bloomsbury basement she learns to harness her talent - and to finally look towards the future. But success is fragile when you have a past filled with secrets. On a wintry, moonlit night a body is found in Bloomsbury Square, and what began as an audacious subterfuge erupts into a scandal. Cordelia's past is revealed, bringing not only heartache but terror - and the mystery of a cloaked figure who waits for her in the shadowy London streets.

Journal Entry 4 by futurecat at Christchurch, Canterbury New Zealand on Tuesday, March 01, 2011
A great story about two women who dare to challenge Victorian society by setting themselves up in business (without a man - gasp!) and, even worse, providing information to young women on the "gentle intricacies of the wedding night".

A welcome distraction from the aftershocks - thanks keeta1.
