The Paying Guests by Sarah Waters
My rating: 1 of 5 stars
Too cliche. Too "look at my hidden lesbianism." Too poorly structured, especially the passages about the martyrdom of housework. My first, and probably last, Sarah Waters book. A plot twist couldn't even keep me remotely interested in this. If you want to read a well-written, truly heartbreaking story about women in love, read Bodies of Water by T. Greenwood. Not this. If I was a lesbian - I'm not, but if I was - this book would have annoyed me.
