• Long Listed for the 2018 Wattys • A Wattpad Featured Story • Top 30 in the first ever Historical Awards [ A "GREAT EXPECTATIONS" RETELLING ] GENRE: historical fiction London, 1884 "Sometimes, even messiahs can't bring back the dead." Instead of earning the reputation of a modest doctor, Matthew Knightley seems to be earning one of a raven chasing rebel amongst his peers. Taking a side turn from the family business and fighting a cold war with your father doesn't help either. Still, he does not let such inconvenices steer his ship into the wrong direction. Though, the raven Matthew keeps seeing leads him again and again to a woman with more half-truths than lies. She may not say so herself, but Mathilda Penrose may be one of those secrets that Matthew never bargained for. Hints and glimpses of a carefully structured past follow him. They all point to a past that the newer generation of the Knightleys and Penroses barely know of. Instead of abolishing that cold war with his father, Matthew finds the very base of his own Eden shattering into a thousand rays of scorching light. || Cover by @elzarion || | #33 in Historical Fiction on 26-8-18 | || UPDATED WEEKLY ||
