Take the Waters
An amazing read that details the destiny of two women & their lives borne of the social reality in 1860's England. Waters' prose will have your every sense transported to the psychologically, physically & emotionally stifling settings within this epic. With more twists & turns than a ravaged woman's petticoats secrets are guarded so closely & with such dire outcomes. After reading this I feel incredibly grateful that I did not live in that period but truly appreciative of the vicarious experience Waters has provided here. Such is her skill all her books transport me from page 1 but for me this is her best yet. After reading this you may ponder if are we more than the environment from which we came. Unfortunately it's still a valid question for many women in 2012. At least 50% of the population should read this. The other 50% should listen attentively when we talk about it. by Lisa Preston
