Not bad, but knowing many of the plot elements (from reading Clayhanger) kind of removes any suspense. Still, interesting to hear Hilda's point of view, but her character never seems quite as real as Edwin's does. In fact mostly I just read this only to find out why oh why did she ever get involved with bigamist Cannon? This was another eBook, but annoyingly 'These Twain' (the next one) isn't available free on Gutenberg, so don't know what I'm going to do next. Might even have to buy it.
