Well-written.. which got me to p.186 ... but I just couldn't care about any of it.

It's taken me five weeks to plough through this book. I don't know why. Zadie Smith writes well and develops her characters. I'm not uninterested in a family saga between two University families who have fallen out. I suppose I was uninterested in the personalities involved who were on the whole unlikeable. I never quite got to the point of abandoning the book. It was just rather hard to pick it up again each time I'd put it down.

Historical fiction just how I like it - based on real happenings this story is set in a time when Charles Dickens was writing, slavery was officially abolished yet racial prejudice was rampant, and a trial was holding everyone's attention. Eliza Touchet was the Scottish housekeeper (and more) of her cousin a once-famous author. Eliza was very close to his first wife before she died; the second wife once being a servant in the house and the total opposite of the first and Eliza. Eliza can never quite find her place in society being a single woman.

The Tichborne Trial involved a man who claimed to be the heir of a wealthy and important family in England whose son had supposedly disappeared when a ship drowned off the coast of South America. This man had none of the refinements of a gentleman and is believed to be a butcher from Australia.

The book is about half of Eliza's life and the other half interspersed is the story of the trial. Both are interesting. Good writing; good story.
