The Girl From Whitefield Hall by Pete Harrison Book Review

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Emily has decided to hide her identity and gender to become a detective. She wants to see if she can get away with it. Her maid is all that she has to help her. When she winds up getting away with the ruse, she continues to investigate the cases she’s working on. She finds that she has a real gift for talking to people and getting the truth out of them when nobody else can.
While there were many parts of this book that were so confusing and seemingly all over the place, this was a very nice book. I was impressed by the use of the items that are used to help hide feminine features so that a person can consider themselves a man. There was also something happened in the book that I won’t say what that I was so happy to see! I could just gush and gush over it. I totally ship it is all I can say! There were some really sad parts though.
This book was narrated by Christine Rendel. She has an impressive list of books that she’s narrated. This is the first one that I have heard though. I really did enjoy it though. She definitely put herself in the time period that the book takes place in. I am very impressed when narrators do that. It makes listening that much more enjoyable. I can’t wait to listen to other books by her.
This book was very innovative and awe-inspiring. Yes, it could use a polish. Not everything is really understandable. It kind of jumps back and forth here and there. It’s still a worthwhile read. I love the forward-thinking of the author. I know many people will disagree with me that part. They will say that she should have kept to the time frame. To them, I say, just because it wasn’t talked about as much as it is now doesn’t mean it didn’t happen. It was just hidden better than it is now. Not that any of that needs to be hidden. I recommend this book.
