Reviews & Summaries
Nan has more than one relationship with women during her adventures in Victorian London and the director shows it on screen, so it would probably be rated "R" if it were in American theaters. The series is also very historically accurate, including its depiction of upper-class lesbian culture of the 19th century.
Nan hits rock bottom several times, so there are some very sad parts to the book, but hang in there until the end, as it will be well worth it! The costumes alone are gorgeous.
