The Dress Lodger
By Sheri Holman
Atlantic Monthly,
304 pages

U.S. writer Sheri Holman's second novel is a complex, Dickensian entertainment that employs dreadful suspense, heartbreaking characterization and an appropriately mannered prose to tell its morality tale of a 15-year-old girl in 19th-century England who's a labourer by day and a prostitute by night. Carefully researched, with a surprisingly affecting end.
