Before he was famous, she knew him.

But what she creates instead is a clear and moving look at her own life as a servant girl in Yorkshire, and chronicles her all-too-easy descent into the disreputable and unfortunate underbelly of London.

    Very unconventional Sherlock Holmes story . . . true to his character but taking on new territory. We get a great, and believable glimpst into why Holmes is the way he is is the canon. We get to see other facets of Holmes personality (while still in character) Poignant, sad, believable, sensual, and brilliant. A wonderfully likeable and deep romantic interest holds the story together and makes this story stand apart from so many other Holmes centered love stories.

    This book allows one to see Holmes as a lover, an emotion he does not reveal very often. You see the complexity of his mind, yet you understand it. The romance is just right and Holmes is gentle but firm.
