Review by: Colin Appleyard on July 20, 2015 :
The Coffin Makers Daughters series gives an insight into life in Victorian times. They add another dimension to the extensive family history research I have been doing for the last number of years. Blind Bargain was as much an essay of social history as it was a good read. Sweet Thunder gave an insight to other social matters in the same era. If you want a good read, some social history or both I can recommend Bunny's books.

Having read Bunny's previous books, I was awaiting this latest with great anticipation: I was not disappointed. I couldn't put it down! Such a good read, so vivid and would make an excellent film. I think Bunny's books just get better and better.
