I love books set in the late 1700’s/ early 1800’s.  It was a time when absolutely anything was possible. Curses and superstitions were very real.  If you could discover a rhinoceros, surely a mermaid was feasible?  Pandora is set in that time.  Atmospheric, intriguing, mysterious and SO evocative… the sights and smells (euuuww the smells!)… Pandora will take you straight there…

Living in London in 1799 is hard.  Making a living in London is hard.  Being an orphaned young woman in the care of an unscrupulous uncle is hard but Dora Blake is determined to change the course of her life through her jewellery design.  When a mysterious Greek vase is delivered to what used to be her parents’ famed shop of antiquities, Dora is intrigued by her uncle’s suspicious behaviour and enlists the help of Edward Lawrence, a young antiquarian scholar. Edward sees the ancient vase as key to unlocking his academic future and admission to the illustrious Society of Antiquaries. Dora sees it as a chance to restore the shop to its former glory, and to escape her nefarious uncle.

But what Edward discovers about the vase has Dora questioning everything she has believed about her life, her family, and the world as she knows it.  Prepare to be gripped!! (And dont you love the cover?  Apparently its the same illustrator who did the cover for The Binding)
