Elijah’s Mermaid is a book set in England during the Victorian era & it takes readers on a journey through both the respectable & richer parts of this setting & through to the darker, poorer areas where criminals, brothels & asylums rule the streets. I really enjoyed this book, with it’s layers & layers of themes & secrets, as well as it’s brutal honesty of England during the 1800s, but some scenes were difficult to read & left me feeling very uncomfortable.
