    As a pair of young scholars research the lives of two Victorian poets, they uncover their letters, journals, and poems, and track their movements from London to Yorkshire - from spiritualist seances to the fairy-haunted far west of Brittany. What emerges is an extraordinary counterpoint of passion and ideas.

    Overall

    I really liked this book. I thought the narrator borugh tthe right touch of aloof englishness to the story. And the story captured me. I was worried that I would find the time hopping points of view to be confusing or tedious, but it really helped reinforce the story arc for both time periods. The portions that were told through the letters between Randolph Ashe and Cristobel Lamont were wonderful and intimate. I had watched the movie and was skeptical that the book could be better but it was wonderful much more nuanced and I was sad when it was over!
