A Pocket Full Of Fame: Silent Women Series – Kitty Fisher
Such a lovely read

Kitty sat before the looking-glass, pushing a lock of dark hair from her languid eyes. Turning her chin this way and that, she caught her reflection in the dancing candle-light. Her skin was pale now. Pale enough to need no powder to aid its translucent complexion. ‘Wan has always become me.’ she thought and threw herself an arch and coquettish smile – the same smile she had used a thousand times before upon fashionable young men of wealth. The same smile she had thrown irreverently to lovers as they undressed her with a hungry gaze. But with the next turn of her head she caught the ominous shadows dimpling her gaunt cheeks and resting heavily below her eyes. They besmirched her blanched face – smudging her beauty and revealing the ghastly shades of her ashen features. Her smile darkened and then twisted itself into an abrasive cough, bursting coarsely from her lips as rudely as a lover bursts from twisted bed sheets when exposed in an illicit tête-à-tête.
