Waterstones Says

Few modern authors have recreated Victorian England in all its urban squalor and rural decay as vividly as Sarah Waters. Two women’s journeys through the underbelly of nineteenth-century society are rendered with dark beauty and brittle tenderness.

Shortlisted for the Orange Prize (now the Baileys Women's Prize for Fiction) and the Man Booker Prize

London 1862.

Sue Trinder, orphaned at birth, grows up among petty thieves - fingersmiths - under the rough but loving care of Mrs Sucksby and her 'family'. But from the moment she draws breath, Sue's fate is linked to that of another orphan growing up in a gloomy mansion not too many miles away.
