First and foremost there are two things I need to say The first is that I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway The second is that I do not usually read historicals and when I do they re mostly classics as such this book was a bit of an adventureLittle Bones by Janette Jenkins tells the story of Jane Stretch in the end of the Victorian era A cripple deemed wiser than her years she is abandoned by her irresponsible parents and later by her sister in the apartment her family had rented in London One belonging to a doctor in need of a helping hand With nowhere to go and the offer of work and a home Jane becomes the doctor s assistant She follows him to houses upon houses of girls whose hands she holds as they go through the worst of their sickness Throughout the book we are told not only Jane s and her family s story but also that of the girls the doctor s and of multiple other characters We stumble upon beggars and priests artists who made it and artists who did not common folk and bourgeois In this way and aided by a lyrical and adjective rich language Jenkins recreates a vivid image of the London of old to the point where it is easy to see the streets Jane walked when running errands for the doctor and his wife or the view out of her window This I believe is the biggest strength in the bookHowever it is also this strength that failed the book There were moments when I felt like the scene did very little for the story itself It was only just something to characterize an era or a character described well enough already Indeed there were too many moments of Jane s past that served no purpose such as the hundreds of different times Jane revels over every person who spoke of India in her presence This dilutes the book uite a bit and often dragged me out of the world instead of pulling me into it I lost count of the times the uestion and the point is ran through my head Seeing as Jenkins s cast is diverse in many ways it seems to me that she tended to focus on the unnecessary and lost many good opportunities to write a richer and enveloping worldThis and a couple of other things I cannot discuss here for fear of spoiling the book for those who didn t read it detracted me from sympathising with Jane when the conseuences of her actions unfurled It also did not help that even though spoken as particularly intelligent by nearly all who met her Jane did not feel to be so Her intelligence seemed average which makes me wonder if the author could not portray it or if it had been her intent to make it sound that people thought that a female of average intellect was rare If the last is the case her tone did not convey that critiue properly and I will assume it as soOther criticisms however I cannot admonish Indeed I do like how she presented the treatment of cripples and the poor as well as other social problems most of which still plague humanity She was clear and did not do such common things as demonise the rich for having money or the women who want to escape from what I cannot say You ll have to read the book In this Jenkins was a breath of fresh airIn short Little Bones has its flaws and its strengths just like any other book But it is also one with an author who has a lot of space and a clear capacity to grow in her writing I definitely look forward to reading of Jenkins s work in the future
