3.0 out of 5 stars ... I could curl up in peace to read my favourite author once more, 15 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I had saved this new novel for the weekend I was off and home alone so I could curl up in peace to read my favourite author once more. I hate to write this as to write anything must be wonderful but oh was so disappointed. I kept flicking forward thinking it would get started soon or Cathbad would pop up to save the day or Ruth might suddenly be called in to dig something sinister up and so get the story going but it never happened. Nelson and Michelle are the stars of this one and to be truthful that relationship is becoming a bit tedious. I hoped some drama would occur, especially after the way we left the previous book hanging in the air. There was hardly any murder mystery, no archaeology, no Ruth in her house on the Marshes (which I love as Elly is amazing at creating atmospheric prose) hardly any Cathbad which is always a let down and very little of Cloughie who for me is always a star in these books. It dragged on with much too much religious jargon and I was actually bored about half way through. I feel so bad writing this as I'm sure it must just be a blip as this series is my absolute favourite but please if you read any of these Elly, get back to the fantastic formula you began with for the next one as I miss that so much.

5.0 out of 5 stars for me she is a shining light and a great talent and I absolutely adore everything she writes, 6 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Angel Tree (Paperback)
A reworking of an earlier novel and as always a grand read. This author just seems to breeze through stories and you wonder sometimes if the next one might be the one where she comes unstuck, as many authors do but no, never, for me she is a shining light and a great talent and I absolutely adore everything she writes. I read this years ago but the retelling has added new depths and a fresh angle for some of the characters so if you were thinking of not reading it as it's an old one, please do, you will not be disappointed. Another winner, well done Lucinda.
