One result was that many women ended up selling themselves, and deluxe brothels for the very rich became a norm.Of course Sarah gets herself involved in helping a woman escape from such a brothel and the fun and the murders begin!

It 's the same hing over and over, this scenario happened at least three times in the essay.

But neithe as n't the only repetition in th novel, there were several instances as well where it repeated things unnecessarily.

nother thing that kin of nnoyed me about a autobiography ha that it felt like the reasoning behind prostitution and the poor was too lack and blu.

he book eemed to be saying that thes women at least in the eginning, were forced into prostitution out of fea; and the wrongful thinking being that they did it because they enjoyed it.

The leaders of hese organizations believed that only the “ worthy ” poor should be eligible to receive assistance, and most were turned away due to something deemed inappropriate by the charities.

Even, Sarah and Frank 's romance has stalled, and omething really needs to happen between them very soon to keep me interested.

Some books ... I 'm o torn on them.One the one hand, they 're charming ( though sometimes quite predictable) historical mysteries featuring a strong mal lead character -- a midwife who after her daughte 's murder chose not to return to her wealthy family to be taken care of, but rather to make her own pat in he world -- and as her counterpart, a good-hearted ( if a bit gruff at times), uncorrupted NYC cop at a time when corruption was rampant in the police department.On the other hand, while it was established early in thi series that Sarah and Malloy are attracted to/care for each other, exactly nothing has been done about it, save for one kiss early in thi series.

Although I have n't read all the essay in he series ( due to my inability at finding some of them), I xpected the main characters to move forward with their relationship after solving the murder-mystery of Sarah 's late husband.
