This is a story told in two parts, a famous inheritance trial in Victorian London and the lives of several famous literary figures from the time.
The first half centers on the author William Ainsworth and his housekeeper Mrs. Touchet. Eliza Touchet does not suffer fools and she tries to protect her cousin and employer from critics and others as the family falls into financial ruin. The second part of the story centers around the trial of a man who came out of the woodwork to claim a hefty inheritance and the young Jamaican man who is the star witness. Mrs. Touchet is front and center and makes her feelings concerning social justice, colonialism and abolishing slavery known. The short chapters come fast and furious and deal with multiple time periods narrated by Mrs. Touchet. There is a lot going on in this historical look at the ins and outs of Victorian England. 3 1/2 stars
