  • The Baines sisters, Constance and Sophia, were born and raised in the English Midlands. In 1867, Sophia eloped to Paris with a raffish young salesman, while Constance stayed at home and married an assistant in her parents’ drapery shop. They lived completely different lives—Constance was upheld by a Victorian world of stability, while Sophia was abandoned by her husband and had to fend for herself in an unsettled Paris. In their last years they were reunited, changed by their lives, yet in some ways they remained essentially the same. Bennett’s affection for the girls shines through on every page.
