5.0 out of 5 stars Very thought provoking, 11 April 2008
This review is from: The Victorian Chaise-longue (Hardcover)
This was brilliant, and it's thanks to a friend I read it. I'm so pleased she recommended this novella (I think that's what it'll be classed as) otherwise I may not have stumbled across it on my own. It's chilling and actually quite scary as we've all undoubtedly stood at some point looking at artifacts or antiques wondering about the lives of the people who owned them - this is a chance to find out.

The story is superb. Melanie is from the 1950s, has a loving husband Guy and a small baby; she's recovering from TB and has decided to get out of bed and move to a different room for a change of scenery. Before she became ill she bought a Victorian chaise-longue (as depicted on the cover of most of the books). The description of this item of furniture is excellent. She falls asleep surrounded with happiness and contentment at being on the road to recovery. However she drifts into a nightmare world of the 1800s, with the previous owners of the chaise-longue. Then in she steps to the world of Milly.
