I took to Mrs. Chrisman's books soon after I found her website… First Wheel in Town is a short, pleasant, utterly Victorian read full of charming characters and captivating historical detail. I can really tell that this novella is crafted by the hands of someone who seriously knows their source material, and I appreciate that very much in my historical fiction. The plot itself is captivating enough and centers around the arrival of a bicycle in a coastal Victorian town, budding romance, and all of the social events that come with people not quite understanding something they've never seen before. From start to finish, it was a welcome reverie of a time gone by.
Oh...and I'll be moving right on to the next one!
