Ms. Wylde is able to put you in the setting. She describes the costumes and even tells us what Lady Bathsheba, the goat wears or tears. When Penelope ties a string to a bust in order to tell when Anna leaves her room, you can see it. You can almost swear you smell the perfumes that Madame uses on Penelope. I really felt like I was right there with Penelope while I was reading the book.
Penelope was sent to me free by the author, Anya Wylde, to read as an e-book because she liked my review of her first book.
