The Essex Serpent by Sarah Perry . Review

The story begins with the death of Michael Seaborne , he leaves behind his son Francis and wife Cora. Cora is an unusual woman who is a keen naturalist which is unusual for the times she is living in. After the passing of her husband she leaves London and moves to Essex . Before her husband died , his doctor , Luke "The Imp " Garrett carried out house calls to them , then , after Michaels death a friendship develops between the two , and for one of them it has more meaning and so they keep in contact after her move through letters . 
I thought Cora was a great lead character, she went against tradition of that time to do as she pleased rather then what society expected of her. She had unconventional interests and friendships and lived her life to the full and was liked even more because of the honesty of it. She was true to herself and it was impossible not to admire that about her . I recommend this to anyone who likes a rebellious female lead character .
