The belle of London by Nicola Italia

I have read earlier novels of this author before and most are quite good. One was very steamy. This one is not. A young adult Englishwoman, daughter of an architect, in Victorian London looses both parents. To have income she needs a job. The only thing she is quite good at is music so she joins a theatre group what is quite scandalous.

The novel is a love story but not a two dimensional romance novel as it also navigates the thin line between mistresses and women with virtue in a more liberal working environment and where to draw a line. Of needing income and not depending on a man. Of fitting in in a different social group. As a modern woman with a job you can relate.
