SHE HAS DONE IT AGAIN,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Trespass (Paperback)
Rose Tremain is a master at the art of simply telling a good story . I am a fan [ see my other reports on her work ]and as such enjoy everything she writes . I admire greatly her ability to write completely new stories with new settings and new themes each time .
With Trespass the setting is rural France . Two sets of siblings ; one French one English ; both with unusual childhoods which have affected their adult lives . They come together over the contentious purchase of the French set's family home with disastrous consequences .
There is sex of various inclinations ; there is deception ; there is cruelty and murder .
The characters are all believable and fascinating in their own sad ways. The inter action between them makes for a fine tale which you won't put down until the final page .
