An absorbing tale,

This review is from: A Half Forgotten Song (Paperback)
In 1937 teenager, Mitzy Hatcher, is living a sheltered but unhappy existence in Dorset. When celebrated artist, Charles Aubrey, and his family, including his two young daughters, come to stay in the summer, she becomes entranced by them, in particular Charles.
This is a dual-time narrative story, and the modern day story is that of art gallery owner and would-be artist, Zach Gilchrist, who goes to Dorset to write a book about Charles Aubrey, and finds out more about the events of the three summers that the Aubreys spent there.
I enjoyed this book, although it couldn't possibly beat my favourite Katherine Webb book, The Unseen. I always like stories set in two different times, when the person in the present day is finding out about mysteries in the past. I think this story was maybe a little on the long side but overall an absorbing tale.
