    Hey everyone
    Just wanted to see if anyone else is a fan of Sarah Waters?
    Her novels include 'Tipping The Velvet', 'Fingersmith', 'Affinity' and 'The Night Watch'?
    The first two novels have been on the Tv, on BBC1. The novels are based around the victorian time, and then 'The Night Watch' around WWII
    Beautifully written, some people consider them a bit controversial as the author is a lesbian and does focus on relationships, but in a very romantic and touching way.
    Would love to hear anyone elses thoughts on these.:p

    I have to be honest, i am really lucky as i know the author and i always get the beautiful hard back versions, autographed. My favourite is Fingersmith, so unbelievably clever, and not at all predictable, i read most of it with my mouth open in shock! lol
