Written in the opulent Victorian style of Jane Austen, Thomas Hardy, and the Brontë sisters, “Trembling Surrender” will transplant you back to the lavish world of fin de siècle rural England, where strict moral codes were quickly coming undone, and hidden desires that had been bottled up for ages began bursting at the seams. Behind it all, we sense a narrator with an agile sense of humor and a readiness to examine and even parody the peccadillos of a particular time and culture. This novel is a passionate glimpse into another era.
