    DescriptionIn fin-de-siecle Copenhagen, part-time prostitute Charlotte and her lumpen sidekick, Fru Schleswig, have taken on jobs as cleaning ladies of dubious talent to tide them over the harsh winter of 1897. But the home of their neurotic new employer, the widow Krak, soon reveals itself to be riddled with dark secrets - including the existence of a demonic machine rumoured to swallow people alive. Rudely catapulted into twenty-first-century London, the hapless duo discover a whole new world of glass, labour-saving devices and hectic, impossible romance.

    Review quote
    'Unashamedly gleeful: a kind of topsy-turvy Jane Eyre with added time travel ... Sit back, suspend your disbelief, and enjoy' Daily Mail 'Less science fiction than fairy tale, it is also a love story, complete with many dramatic reversals of fortune and narrated in appealingly breathless, energetic style ... Jensen is a consistently inventive writer' Sunday Telegraph 'This sweetly entertaining story is enough on the magical side of realism to allow love, for once, to conquer all' Sunday Times 'Captivating ... There are moments of genius ... Packed with charm and energy, this is definitely worth taking the, er, time to read' Time Out
