Falling Angels Summary

Falling Angels by Tracy Chevalier

`Vividly imagined' Sunday Telegraph

`Sex and death meet again in [a] marvellous evocation of Edwardian England' Daily Mail

The girl reminded me of my favourite chocolates, whipped hazelnut creams, and I knew just from looking at her that I wanted her for my best friend.

Queen Victoria is dead. In January 1901, the day after her passing, two very different families visit neighbouring graves in a London cemetery. The traditional Waterhouses revere the late Queen where the Colemans have a more modern outlook, but both families are appalled by the friendship that springs up between their respective daughters.

As the girls grow up, their world changes almost beyond measure: cars are replacing horses, electric lighting is taking over from gas, and emancipation is fast approaching, to the delight of some and the dismay of others...

Falling Angels Reviews

`Sex and death meet again in Tracy Chevalier's marvellous evocation of Edwardian England' Daily Mail

`Cleverly atmospheric' Sunday Telegraph

`The author's grip on the reader is as powerful as in her first novel. It is almost impossible to break off reading this driving narrative' Independent

`A master stylist in the making' Boston Globe

`Writing about the past - especially this much written-about period - has its pitfalls, but Chevalier has triumphantly avoided them. The result is a novel that shows both the strangeness of the world as it was and its closeness to our own time' The Times
