ORDINARY LIVES

by Bethany W. Pope

There is nothing ordinary about ORDINARY LIVES, a new historical novel by British writer and poet Bethany W. Pope. Her riveting story captures London’s early nineteenth-century demimonde world in all its shadowy desperations and perversity. A novel of Gothic suspense, it resonates as both a classic love story and a modern, feminist cautionary tale with its every dark and quirky turn. At the book’s heart is Mary, its central character and chief irony: a pituitary dwarf whose large intelligence, courage, and unyielding principles help her overcome her diminutive form. And there is John: a gentleman’s third son and unloved momma’s boy who risks reputation and even life itself to find real, nurturing love. Add an unscrupulous Frankenstein-like doctor, a transvestite sexual mentor, and ...
