In 1901 London, as the precise social order of the Victorian era winds down and the forward-looking Edwardian order takes wing, three strangers meet in the city's stony Highgate Cemetery. Beautiful Lavinia revels in the elaborate trappings of the past. Plain Maude strives to shape the future. Simon Fields, a boy their age, is bound by poverty and professional to the cemetery.

As they explore the prejudices and flaws of a changing time, they bring their very different families together and ultimately discover that their fates are intertwined.

I love cemeteries, and the graveyard is prominent in this book, which is set in Europe during the women’s suffrage movement. I liked it best of the three Chevalier novels which I have read because it is set in more modern times – early 1900s – versus her historical novels set in the more distant past. This one does not incorporate with any real men or women.

When I first read this book several years ago I did not like it. Now I've tried the audio version & am very taken with it. The reader is excellent, just the right tone, caught my imagination & I find myself listening to it frequently. Since the reading I've visited many Victorian cemeteries & now have a totally different view of the story - maybe that made the difference. TC is most enjoyable.
