The Essex Serpent

Perry, Sarah, 1979- author

Set in Victorian London and an Essex village in the 1890's, and enlivened by the debates on scientific and medical discovery which defined the era, 'The Essex Serpent' has at its heart the story of two extraordinary people who fall for each other, but not in the usual way.

They meet as their village is engulfed by rumours that the mythical Essex Serpent, once said to roam the marshes claiming human lives, has returned
