4.0 out of 5 stars An interesting family history mystery!
I am wondering how much time has elapsed between novels. I had down-loaded this one, a sequel to "Family Shadows", at the same time and did not expect to enjoy it much. However, I was pleasantly surprised, as the writing style has improved enormously. I really warmed to the characters this time and the genealogical side was not only factual, but also intriguing...

However, I was pleasantly surprised, as the writing style has improved enormously. I really warmed to the characters this time and the genealogical side was not only factual, but also intriguing. No sense of being lectured to, (this time) and far more realistic dialogue made for a much more enjoyable read.

I was looking forward to this author's second book and was not disappointed. I enjoyed every bit of it and although I did manage to work out the ending before I got there I found myself unable to put the kindle down till I had finished it.
Well worth the purchase and look forward to the next one

I have just finished reading all 3 of John Nixon's books. I enjoyed every single one of them. Can't wait to see if he's got anymore up his sleeve. All 3 well worth a read. Very easy and interesting reading.

This is the sequel to an earlier book but it stands on its own very easily. It has an engrossing plot and is of interest to genealogists and family historians.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, I started it yesterday morning and finished it tonight after I had rushed home from work especially, so I could finish it. I was totally gripped by the second page. It is a nice easy read with just enough intrigue and not too confusing. I didn't realise that there was a first book as which maybe I should have read that first but I will now be ordering that now. I hope there are more to come from this author.
