Fascinating - ghosts are living people crossing time zones!,
By A Customer
This review is from: Sutton Place: Unabridged (Audio Cassette)
I read 'Sutton Place' some three years ago, and knowing it was part of a trilogy , I tried to trace the other two books in the series, without success. However, the wonder of the period revealed in Sutton Place has left me with the desire to read the other books when and if I ever find them. I even tried to reach the author at her home town as advertised in the book that I have, but unfortunately, with no success.
The book itself is a marvellous insight into the life of the Dudley family and the intrigue of their involvement with the crown of England and the beautiful Anne Boleyn, wife of Henry the Eighth. The superstition of their home place is a wonderful twist in the tail and totally fascinting. The beginning of the weird luck attached to their ancestral home sends a shiver down the spine. The fact that people from two different times see each other simultaneously in their own time zones makes me wonder whether in fact "ghosts" are simply a juxtaposition in time, whereby two different levels of living people see each other as "ghosts" whereas in fact, they are both alive and well in their own times but experiencing a strange phenomenon, appearing to each other as ghosts because they are basically current images from a time different to that in which the observer is living, which have some how crossed over. I loved the book and wish I could find the other two in the series. What a wonderful writer!!! I couldn't put the book down until the last page was read.

Perhaps if you read pour the dark wine, this will finish the triollogy for you. Sutton place was really good but you will find that sutton place was not really to do with the dudley family but the weston family.
