Out now in paperback.

October 1840. A young woman staggers alone through a forest in Shropshire as a huge pair of impossible wings rip themselves from her shoulders.

Meanwhile, when rumours of a 'fallen angel' cause a frenzy across London, a surgeon desperate for fame and fortune finds himself in the grips of a dangerous obsession, one that will place the women he seeks in the most terrible danger . . .

Set against the luminous backdrop of nineteenth century London, The Gifts is a gorgeous novel of science, nature and religion, enlightenment, the role of women in society and the dark danger of ambition.

'Haunting, thrilling, wonderful. I loved it'
