"Intricate, compelling and stuffed full of intrigue, The Square of Sevens will sweep you into its world."--Fiona Barton, bestselling author of The Widow
"This rich, complex and haunting Dickensian epic is a triumph of the Gothic genre. A book that stays with you. Shepherd-Robinson is an exceptional writer and meticulous researcher. She creates an atmosphere so evocative of the 18th century I breathed the same air as the characters, wore their clothes, felt what they felt. The Square of Sevens is a masterpiece."
