1.0 out of 5 stars Boring, 4 April 2010
This review is from: Bone House (Paperback)
After having read 'The Bounce' which had its moments but proved ultimately unsatisfactory, I thought I would give the author another chance with this, her first book.

The story begins with rather a long narrative introducing place and people, which I felt could have been better done through action of some sort. It is told by a serving girl at the big house to whom the lady takes a shine and so is elevated to working personally for the lady instead of as a kitchen maid. I smelt a stereotype at this point and there proved to be many more - young girl raped by the son of the master who had his bastard child, master's son crippled and hated by father, prostitute who provided succour to the men of the village and to whom the women brought gifts, innocent woman accused of witchcraft, alcoholic bully of a father.

I found it all a bit boring after a short while and skimmed much of the book. Not one for me, I'm afraid.
