This August marks the release of the second in Lillian Marek’s Victorian Adventures series, Lady Emily’s Exotic Journey! To celebrate her new release, Lillian’s here to share a fact about the Victorian era she discovered during her research:
“Madame Rachel” made a fortune in London during the 1860s and 70s selling fabulously expensive cosmetics and beauty treatments to women, many of which were nothing but barley water. She was jailed several times for fraud and eventually died in prison.

He seeks only to explore the far reaches of the world. But he did not know the world contained the likes of Lady Emily - whose curiosity and sense of wonder match his own.
