In reading the gothic psychological novel Affinity it is nearly impossible to shake off an overwhelming feeling of gloom and pervasive dread Following a failed suicide attempt a young lady visitor named Margaret Prior develops a relationship with an inmate named Selina Dawes in a Victorian women s prison and both their lives are forever changed by their acuaintanceNarrated in alternating chapters by the two very different women this dark moody story incites fear melancholy and terrible pity As always with this author s work comes a thoroughly researched story and a compelling look at women in oppressive circumstances as well as how their limited choices often lead to desperate attempts to control their own destinies There s also an erotic undercurrent of forbidden attraction running deep in this novel as Margaret finds herself increasingly drawn to the mysterious Selina Dawes who has been imprisoned for a spiritualist reading gone horribly wrong Their subtly blooming attraction is heightened by the misery of the contrast with Selina s living conditions at Millbank Prison an actual London prison by the way and it s a certainty that in Margaret s desire to save Selina she is also desperate to save herself And what will your sister do if her husband should die and she should take another Who will she fly to then when she has crossed the spheres For she will fly to someone we will all fly to someone we will all return to that piece of shining matter from which our souls are torn with another two halves of the same It may be that the husband your sister has now has that other soul that has affinity with her soul I hope it is But it maybe the next man she takes or it may be neither It may be someone she would never think to look to on the earth someone kept from her by some false boundarySarah Waters writes in dense elegant prose and tells stories that unfold with exuisite deliberation Affinity is similar to The Little Stranger in that there are such evocative spine chilling moments including a particularly vivid one involving view spoilerdripping wax and a dimpled baby s arm O hide spoiler

Sexy Spooky Stylish that s the blurb on the cover If I was not a Sarah Waters fan already I would have picked up the book based on those words How can you resist a book with that description After reading the book I can safely say that those words are an accurate description of Affinity I will further add to that Haunting and magicalIt seems I have been reading many deliciously gothic novels recently Well I am not complaining Affinity is yet another addition to my love for anything gothic Sarah Waters who is considered the ueen of Victorian Gothic novels churns out yet another winnerMargaret Prior suffers a complete mental breakdown following her father s death A failed suicide attempt breaks her even further She lives with her domineering mother and a sister who will soon be married Margaret feels jealous because she thinks by marrying her sister will somehow evolve while she will remain stagnant She s constantly under her mother s watchful eyes and is treated like an imbecile Her former lover Helen is now married to her brother a fact that she is still unable to get over Margaret is a repressed closed up young woman with no hopes for the futureIn order to forget her painful past she becomes a lady visitor at Millbank Prison Her job is to talk to the women prisoners listen to them and guide them towards a positive direction She s drawn towards one particular prisoner Selina Dawes a spiritualist and a psychic medium who has been imprisoned for assaulting one of her clientsWhen you love an author a lot you tend to develop gigantic expectations from all of that author s books which is probably unfair I have not been very subtle about my love for Sarah Waters Fingersmith and The Little Stranger are not only my favorite books by her but are also my all time favorites as well Perhaps my expectations were very unrealistic In the beginning I felt a little deflated Don t get me wrong The beginning was compelling enough to keep me reading on but it was just not up to the admittedly unrealistic standards I have set for Sarah Waters novels However this feeling did not last long as the book soon picked up and I was hookedAffinity is told from both Selina s and Margaret s perspectives The reader feels as fascinated by Selina as Margaret is Yet she still remains an enigma a mystery throughout the book The story unfolds slowly with each chapter pulling you in completelySelina is viewed as a charlatan a fraud and a cheat But the time spent talking to her each day convinces Margaret of her truth Moreover there are some strange extraordinary events which provide further proof of Selina s powers With each meeting the magnetic pull which Margaret feels towards Selina intensifies leading towards the ultimately shocking conclusion We are the same you and I We have seen cut two halves from the same piece of shining matter Oh I could say I love you that is a simple thing to say But my spirit does not love yours it is entwined with it Our flesh does not love our flesh is the same I deeply felt for Margaret I felt her frustration and how repressed she was I can understand how suffocated she felt under her mother s constant nagging One of the most powerful aspects of Affinity is the setting and the atmosphere the author creates Millbank prison is like a character in itself the author s descriptions of the prison is so vivid that you can feel the prisoners predicament in the controlled and suffocating environment Margaret s longing for Selina the unspoken but intense forbidden emotions and her unhappiness is heartrending and hits you hard It is as if every poet who ever wrote a line to his own love wrote secretly for me and for Selina My blood even as I write this my blood my muscle and every fibre of me is listening for her When I sleep it is to dream of her When shadows move across my eye it is to dream of her I know them now for shadows of her My room is still but never silent I hear her heart beating across the night in time to my ownMargaret s stark despair and misery really got to me My heart was breaking for her all throughout Sarah Waters has an incredible ability to make you care so much for the characters that they almost become real people to youSelina s descriptions of her life as a medium and her ability to contact spirits is so real and even mesmerizing that you believe her without uestions or skepticism Her conversations with the spirits and her experiences creeped me out uite a bit It unnerved me and fascinated me at the same timeLike most of author s other novels Affinity has females as the main protagonists and is set in the Victorian era In addition the author has elouently tackled subjects like repression sexual awakening and spirituality Three are several feminist elements as well The author very subtly raises uestions about a woman s place in the society Why do gentlemen s voices carry so clearly when women s are so easily stifled Margaret though technically a free woman is still a prisoner to her gender to her circumstances and to her mother s wishes Women are bred to do of the same that is their function It is only ladies like me that throw the system out make it staggerThe ending is probably the best part of the book I am still reeling from the shock of the end It was so unexpected I doubt anyone could have seen it coming To say I am impressed is an understatementLike every other Sarah Waters books Affinity will remain with me for a long time to come If I had not read any other books by this author it would have been a 5 star read for me Affinity in my opinion is not her best but still a fantastic read Sarah Wates lyrical writing makes every book worth itNow I just have two books by Sarah Waters to read and then begins the long painful wait for her next book I believe I can gobble up all of Sarah Waters books in one go and yet be hungry for of her brilliance
