This is a historical fiction novel about the life of Alice Liddell Hargreaves, the inspiration behind Alice in Wonderland. I listened to this on audio book and found it intriguing. I was a bit disturbed by the relationship between Alice and Charles Dodgson (Lewis Carroll). This book is a mix of fact and fiction and I don’t know which parts are which but I was not too happy about the closeness of their relationship.
This will not change my love of Alice in Wonderland but it did make me want to know the truth. I thought the characters were well developed and I really did get absorbed into the story. My heart broke for Alice as she struggled through life. I recommend picking this up to read as an aside for anyone that is a fan of the Alice stories.
I gave this book 4 crowns.
