Very thought provoking and I'm extremely glad I stuck with it. Would recommend - if it had shown more promise at the beginning I would have awarded five stars which I rarely do.
Dimity is indeed a strange character and I'm not entirely sure I liked her. Charles came across to me as being a very weak man even though he seemed to be magnetic to women, and I never really understood why this was the case. I didn't feel there was enough background on his earlier life ( without giving the plot away) and I would have really liked to have known about this. I know Valentina was a cruel and evil woman but she was a strong and interesting character.
On a positive note, I love Katherine Webb's style of writing, which is so atmospheric and detailed that I could virtually feel the heat and the dust in Morocco.
I have only just read the 5 star reviews now that I have finished it and I do feel that I have read an entirely different book to the other reviewers, which leaves me feeling a bit mean.
I am sorry that I didn't enjoy this as much as the other two, but I honestly tried hard to like it, I really did.
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.
