This one is wonderfully dark and gothic, with an unreliable narrator who kept me guessing until the absolute end. Maud is in a desperate situation, without a penny to her name and completely dependent upon Juliana’s whims. She’s haunted by her past, struggling to exist in her current circumstances, but her life is so close to changing for the better.
In case you're wondering what it looks like, the painting in the book is inspired by a real work of art, the Wenhaston Doom.
Disclosure -- the publisher provided me with a review copy.
