THE PAYING GUESTS by Sarah Waters

THE PAYING GUESTSThis historical novel by Sarah Waters is inviting, seductive, mysterious, extremely attentive to detail, and densely stuffed with dilemmas about desire.

The story begins with deceptive simplicity: a British mother and her only surviving relation, her daughter, are unable to make ends meet, so they take in a married couple as “paying guests.”

Very quickly, things become complicated. Then: more complicated.

I won’t spoil it. Enjoy.
