If Victorian sagas are to your taste, this series will delight you. The fortunes of Abel Lackland, the child of the foul Victorian slums of London, are on the rise, but not at all plain sailing.
It is difficult not to spoil the story, but Claire Rayner once again demonstrates very clever writing and produces a tale that gathers us into many twists and turns that befall the family.
Highly recommended if you enjoy good, engrossing saga books.
There is an interesting history of both the medical/surgical and theatrical professions running through the series. It focuses on two families and their descendants.
This is the second book in the series and is about Abel Lackland and Lilith Lucas and their children. It begins on the day of Queen Victoria's marriage in 1840. It is well written (as I find all Claire Rayner's books), and the various events and plotlines leave you hurrying to read on to discover what happens.
If you enjoy historical family sagas I would urge you to try these books. Best if you start with the first "Gower Street", though each book is complete in itself.
