Reviews summary

I was truly fascinated by the descriptive narrative of life of the lower working class during the late 19th century london and robert’s life in broadmoor and beyond

The story starts out in 1895 when a young roberts coombes, 13, and his brother nathaniel, 12, are home alone while their father is aboard a ship to new york working as a steward and their mother is supposedly away visiting a relative

The first half of the book was just what i was looking for -- great research and a fascinating true story

Things got a little dicey about three-fourths of the way through, and i almost gave up reading, thinking the book was just dragging on, wondering how that prologue was going to ever tie into the rest of the story
