Praise for Kate Worsley

‘Worsley does just what a great historical novelist should do: she inhabits her characters without strain, without fuss, but with obvious assurance, making them and their period feel utterly close and convincing. I can’t wait to see more of her fiction.’ Sarah Waters, author of booker-shortlisted Fingersmith and The Little Stranger.
