Review: Storm and Silence (Storm and Silence #1) by Robert Thier

****4 Stars****
Firstly this is my first historical romance book, but will it be my last? No i don't think it will, i really enjoyed Lily's story and what obstacles she overcome as a woman in 19th century London.
The story takes place in Victorian London, this was a time were women and their rights were non existent, (you couldn't even vote)
Lily Linton is given an opportunity for employment but on one condition... She dresses as a man as her employer doesn't want the embarrassment of employing a woman.
Lily has always wanted a life were she works and is independent not the life that is expected of women, women are expected to marry and produce children.
Will Lily change her whole outlook on love and life when she meets the mysterious Mr. Ambrose?
For me Storm and Silence is a really well written, you can tell the author has taken the time with the plot and character development my only gripe would be the length of the book and how slow paced in parts but this wouldn't put me off reading anything else by the author as the book as a whole was totally worth it.

Freedom – that is what Lilly Linton wants most in life. Not marriage, not a brood of squalling brats, and certainly not love, thank you very much!
But freedom is a rare commodity in 19th-century London, where girls are expected to spend their lives sitting at home, fully occupied with looking pretty. Lilly is at her wits’ end – until a chance encounter with a dark, dangerous and powerful stranger changes her life forever...

Enter the world of Mr Rikkard Ambrose, where the only rule is: Knowledge is power is time is money!
