A witty, prettily written, and highly speculative account of the affair between the famous middle-aged novelist Charles Dickens and the penurious teenaged actress Ellen Ternan. The author has filled her pages with colorful detail about the lives and times of both her protagonists, as well as perspicacious criticism of Dickens's writing. To these qualities, Donada Peters adds considerable chatty appeal, keeping the proceedings appropriately light and moving them along at a lively pace. Y.R.
