Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Just like the first book, the combination of a murder mystery and social injustice in The Unquiet Heart are equally interesting to read about. The Sarah Gilchrist series is one that I highly recommend to readers who love historical fiction that deals with the suffragette moment.” Fresh Fiction
“Captivating…[An] excellent mix of historical mystery and romance.” Booklist (starred review)
“Richly evocative…Sarah’s plight is an infuriating one indeed, and readers will cheer her every step of the way.” Publishers Weekly
“Welsh depicts Victorian Edinburgh and nineteenth-century medicine with impressive authority.” Kirkus Reviews
