All books in this series are worthy of a 5 star review because of the sheer realism and the way she brings New York of the 1840s alive. Full of vivid descriptions of the filth, the poverty, the brutality and the corruption of the time and at the heart of it all, an unlikely hero in a sea of humanity struggling to survive.
All books in the seires deal with topics relevant at the time and even today. Racism, women's rights, immigration and poverty all go hand in hand in a world where sentimentality has little place.
My only gripe is that there really should be more books than three in the series. Wonderful reading!
