3.7/5 Goodreads

Peter Carey's novel of the undeclared love between clergyman Oscar Hopkins and the heiress Lucinda Leplastrier is both a moving and beautiful love story and a historical tour de force set in Victorian times. Made for each other, the two are gamblers - one obsessive, the other compulsive - incapable of winning at the game of love.

"A novel of extraordinary richness, complexity and brings the past, in all its difference, bewilderingly into our present. It fills me with wild, savage envy and no novelist could say fairer than that" - Angela Carter
"This remarkable novel has a Dickensian amplitude, and the energy of its writing is also Dickensian" - Spectator
