This ambitious novel takes us from Dublin to Bath with Clorinda Morrissey from Bath to London and Paris with the Angel of Bath Jane Adearne and to Borneo with Sir Ralph Savage and Edmund Ross brother of Valentine Ross the would be husband of Jane The year is 1865 First of all this is extremely well written as you would expect from a writer of the calibre of Rose Tremain It beautifully and almost forensically reflects the times it s social s beliefs attitudes the scientific understanding and medical beliefs in particular as this is intrinsic to the storytelling The female characters are admirable I love Clorinda s work ethic and desire to overcome the poverty and famine of her native Ireland I love Jane s independence and unconventionality which is at total odds with the times something she perhaps inherits from her artist Aunt Emmeline The Male characters are less likeable with perhaps the exception of Jane s father Sir William Adearne an eminent Bath surgeon Valentine Ross gets less and less likeable as the book progresses as he perceives he will not be able to control Jane I m not sure what to make of The Rajah Sir Ralph Savage who is so rich he spends his money on pointless things just because he can maybe that s the point All the characters are searching for something that s possibly elusive and unattainable be it love whether of the kind at odds with society at the time friendship freedom some are ambitious and ruthless in seeking their desires but all are trying to survive the constraints of the times and circumstances There are some lovely descriptions of places especially Bath London and the Paris of Haussmann but I found it harder to engage with Borneo This is also true of the storytelling set in Borneo which I find less interesting and overlong Overall it s Jane s story I love the most I like everything about her from her 6 2 stature her independence and unconventional attitude to life which is a pretty tricky thing in the reign of Victoria With thanks to NetGalley and Random House UK Vintage Chatto and Windus for the ARC
