"... will be read in a sitting. Unless of course you are admitted to Accident and Emergency, having come over queer, huffing with laughter, or dizzy with envy at Faber's talent. Or probably both." Tom Adair, Scotsman "The story-telling has a verve and a slyness that brook no argument... Faber remains an unrivalled master of his subject." David Robson, Sunday Telegraph "Faber's characterisation is unmatched. Sure to keep old fans happy, and win some new ones, too." Big Issue "All offer a poignant sense of the connections between stories and centuries and, thanks to Faber's characteristic mastery of intrigue, the arbitrary nature of endings." Metro"

Faber states that this book will hold its own - that it is not necessary to read Crimson Petal first. I suppose that is a correct statement. but I am so glad that I read it prior to knowing about The Apple. Highly recommend these books and the BBC miniseries.
It is very well done and beautifully written, so if you don't mind the ambiguity you should enjoy these stories. They touched a bit more on the early feminist movement and the strict morals of the past. The characters are rich and compelling. I love the amount of historical detail given.
