內容簡介




為了追求自由,即使代價是一雙沾滿鮮血的手,也必須義無反顧的向前邁進……
由黑暗、唯美與死亡交織而成的奏鳴曲!


歡迎回到十八世紀的英國倫敦。
那裡沒有悠閒地談笑風生的皇室貴族,也沒有田園牧歌般的美麗景致;
只有瀰漫著哥德式恐怖的愛情故事。

入圍英國最重要新人小說獎:2016年戴斯蒙.艾略特獎(Desmond Elliott Prize)

Georgian London, in the summer of 1763.

At nineteen, Anne Jaccob, the elder daughter of well-to-do parents, meets Fub the butcher's apprentice and is awakened to the possibilities of joy and passion. Anne lives a sheltered life: her home is a miserable place and her parents have already chosen a more suitable husband for her than Fub. 
But Anne is an unusual young woman and is determined to pursue her own happiness in her own way... even if that means getting a little blood on her hands.
