*****Review House Of Women - A historical romance/saga by Anne Whitfield
I loved this book. I was rooting for Grace the whole way through as she struggles to care for her sisters and find her place in the world. I find Anne Whitfield's books dramatic and very human, depicting the deeply felt emotions of betrayal, infidelity and disappointments in love. She brings the Victorian era to life beautifully, with accurate depictions of a Victorian household in Yorkshire in 1870 and the restrictions faced by women who are at the whim of tyrannical men. Each of the sisters is strongly drawn and have their own stories to tell. I couldn't put it down. Very nice hero in this too.
