NOVEL OF THE MONTH
The Mermaid and Mrs Hancock by Imogen Hermes Gower
This is truly a remarkable and dazzling debut. Every sentence sparkles with freshness and originality, and the characters are wonderfully drawn. At the heart of the story is the discovery of a mermaid, and a young woman determined to find a better life. Set in Georgian London, from the docklands of Deptford to the brothels of Soho, the city really comes alive in every page. A cracking and highly original tale, brilliantly plotted.
