Storm and Silence

(1)

Freedom - that is what Lilly Linton wants most in life. Not marriage, not a brood of squalling brats, and certainly not love, thank you very much!


But freedom is a rare commodity in 19th-century London, where girls are expected to spend their lives sitting at home, fully occupied with looking pretty. Lilly is at her wits' end - until a chance encounter with a dark, dangerous and powerful stranger changes her life forever...





Enter the world of Mr Rikkard Ambrose, where the only rule is: Knowledge is power is time is money!





Winner of the People's Choice Award 2015

The main character in this book is a strong, young sufragette - Miss Lilly Linton - in 19th-century London who is genuinly disgusted by the way men are treating women. She hates the lack of laws for women and tries everything to change the limited possibilities of the female population. She doesn't crave anything as much as her freedom and her independence. So she dresses up as a male and decides to sneak inside a polling station where she intends to cast her vote. But moments before Lilly can set foot inside the polling station she makes a fortunate encounter with a stranger who offers her a job that will change her life and her opinion about men. Soon Lily is drawn into the world of the hard working population and discovers all the advantages of wearing trousers instead of skirts. I loved every single page of this book. I always admired the antiquated yet beautiful language of this time as well as the style of clothing. Lilly Linton soon became one of my all time favourite characters. Her stoic, sarcastic way of comunicating with others made my days while reading this book. The story is full of witty conversations between Lilly and her employer - overload of sarcasm on Lilly's side, icy stares and barked commands on the other. This is definitely a must read for everyone who enjoys strong female main characters and loves reading about victorian centuries. The sequel In the Eye of the Storm is available on Wattpad.
