Faves of 2019 #adventrecommends Dec 12

This was another Litsy buddy read, this time with the fabulous #shirlitesunite group. A book that started out slow but won me over with its female characters and their deep, complex conversations with each other, set against the politically-engaged backdrop of the Luddite uprisings in Yorkshire.

“His great wealth was a certain element of security. Society—civilized society, at least—is never very ready to believe anything to the detriment of those who are both rich and fascinating. It feels instinctively that manners are of more importance than morals, and, in its opinion, the highest respectability is of much less value than the possession of a good chef.”

Following along with the audiobook and man oh man, this poor detective. He is getting screwed so hard in this. It better all work out for him. I‘m so ready for a big “I told you so” by the end of this.

Working at a library during Christmas is definitely not too shabby (student workers made this — I just enjoy it)

2.5 ⭐ I think I would have liked this more if the characters weren't so terrible to each other.

A dark, gothic, Victorian-era story. The trauma faced by the poor and the restrictions placed upon an heiress.
Despite the horrors, Ruth and the other girls endured while working as seamstresses, I really enjoyed this book.

I enjoyed this story. It's a charming tale set during Christmas as a young girl tries to make sense of what happened to her uncle. Lots of "awww" moments, and a fun little mystery to keep you entertained.
