twist and turns, quite intricately woven together, enjoyed it
Interesting and compelling. Great acting
I liked this much more than the book!
A lovely take on female love and it brings the reality of Charles Dickin's London and the time previous to women's suffrage right home. Nice take on issues as well as beautiful and unexpectedly sensual.
