Jacques Lane reading group say: Tracey Chevalier is an acclaimed author. One wonders whether this was written on her behalf! The story is shallow, with very few issues fully explored. The characters don't ever come to life. It seems there are too many topics and as a consequence none of them has any depth. Disappointing in the extreme! 3*

Synopsis

A visual delight The Times A splendidly vital recreation of Georgian London Sunday Times Tell me, then: would you say you are innocent or experienced? 1792. Uprooted from their quiet Dorset village to the riotous streets of London, young Jem Kellaway and his family feel very far from home. They struggle to find their place in this tumultuous city, still alive with the repercussions of the blood-splattered French Revolution. Luckily, streetwise Maggie Butterfield is on hand to show Jem the ropes. Together they encounter the neighbour theyve been warned about: radical poet and artist William Blake. Jem and Maggies passage from innocence to experience becomes the very stuff of poetic inspiration
