For $2.99, you can travel to the suburbs of London in 2009 with a young American woman who discovers she’s inherited a house and all the secrets that go with it. (I do love house books.) In the house on Herne Hill, she discovers a lost Pre-raphaelite painting hidden in the back of an old wardrobe– and the tangled history that goes with it.
If you’d rather somewhere more tropical, for $1.99 you can head off to colonial Barbados, where– wait! another inheritance! more Victorians!– in 1854 the poor relation of a wealthy Bristol merchant family learns she’s inherited a sugar plantation she didn’t know her grandfather owned, drawing her into the secrets of the previous two generations, spanning a rising of enslaved people in 1816 and a cholera epidemic in 1854.
Which would you prefer? Victorian London or colonial Barbados?
