Book #38: Like Frankenstein, which I had read prior to this novel, this novel brings the horror genre back to the beginning. This is essentially the one that started it all.

I loved the details about the war and I loved the prose. However I liked part 1 much better than part 2. After awhile I did get a little bored with the letters. I thought it could have been a little shorter like 84, Charing Cross but then a little more on the love story. All in all a great read though. I read for #38 of around the year in 52 books. A book not written in the traditional format. #aty2019 #arountheyearin52books
This was Book #38—an ARC I picked up a couple of years ago at BEA—in my quest to read down my TBR pile by 50 books. Set in 1907 New York, it‘s the story of Dr. Genevieve Summerford, a newly minted doctor (psychiatrist to be exact). One of her patients is accused of murder. Was it Summerford‘s advice?
