Impossible Saints by Clarissa Harwood - Book Review





"Impossible Saints" is set in 1907, in England, and follows two main characters - Lilia and Paul. Paul lives an orderly and quiet life as an Anglican priest, and that is shaken slightly when he reunites with his childhood friend Lilia. Lilia was a village school teacher turned suffragist, and she definitely was a stand out character for me in the book. Fairly quickly, Lilia's and Paul's relationship develops into something more - and that leaves both characters questioning ideas that they had built themselves upon. I gave this book three stars because I enjoyed Lilia's character so much - but I just didn't feel like this book did any one thing particularly well. There wasn't that much history for historical fiction, and there wasn't that much for it to be about Lilia's and Paul's relationship.
