The Candlelit Menagerie – Caraline Brown’s new novel, published by Skyhorse, October 2020

‘This intoxicating novel drew me instantly into the thrilling world of the first London menageries, full of the most exotic birds and animals ever seen. And presiding tenderly over them, a woman ahead of her time, the tall crop-haired Lilian, who immediately shot to the top of my list of fascinating, complex literary heroines. What a wonderful, unusual read!’ Beth Miller, author of The Missing Letters of Mrs Bright
