Time-travel back to Victorian London during the Great Exhibition in this spellbinding literary thriller. Iris is a shop girl and aspiring artist who becomes a painter’s model for the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood due to her striking appearance. However, her rising fame also attracts the attention of a sinister collector, putting her in great peril. Perfect for art lovers, readers curious about London life in the 19th century, or anyone who enjoys beautifully written historical fiction, such as The Crimson Petal and the White.
