The illusionists

Thomas, Rosie2015
Books
London, 1870: a terrifying place for a young, beautiful woman of limited means. But Eliza is modern before her time. Not for her the stifling, if respectable, conventionality of marriage, children and domestic drudgery. She longs for more. Through her work as an artist's model, she meets the magnetic and irascible Devil Wix - a born showman whose dream is to run his own theatre company - and his right-hand man, the improbably-named Carlo Bonomi, an ill-tempered dwarf with an enormous talent for all things magic and illusion. A dangerous adventure is about to begin!
