Fingersmith by Sarah Waters

Another extraordinary story from Sarah Waters. Amazing and compelling characters. The dramatic and often dark story is the story of Sue Trinder. You step into her life in Victorian London where she lives in house of pickpockets. It takes you along with her as she plays the maid, falls in love and finds her life entwined with the life of another young girl named Maud. Twists and turns, but you follow them easily to and ending that will leave you breathless.

Your heart is pounding in your chest and you feel all of the pain, the fear and finally the joy that Waters brings to you in this beautiful story.
