LoveReading Says

Rich storytelling set in and around late 18th century Bristol with each character being given a voice and view in separate chapters.  You are driven to read chapter after chapter to gather the differing viewpoints of the plot; highly compulsive.  It centres on a group of female boxers and their patrons which is quite fascinating.  It’s sort of Georgette Heyer with bite.  Bawdy, rude and fun, there are three main girls, Ruth in particular is delightfully course!  Careful attention is paid to the street language of the time and the contrast of rich and poor is well drawn.  But in the end it seems that alcohol and gaming addiction are the real stars. ~ Sarah Broadhurst
