Product Description

About the Author

I was raised abroad, on a pungent mix of Latin American culture, English history and Swedish traditions. As a result I'm multilingual and most of my reading is historical- both non-fiction and fiction. Possessed of a lively imagination, I have drawers full of potential stories, all of them set in the past. For years I combined a challenging career with four children and the odd snatched moment of writing. Luckily, children grow up, and now I spend most of my free time at my writing desk attempting to decipher the squiggled ideas I've jotted down over the years. Every now and then I succeed. I was always going to be a writer. Now I am - I have achieved my dream.

Having enjoyed A Rip in the Veil, I was a little anxious about whether this sequel would be as good. I needn’t have worried. In fact, I think I liked it better! The relationship between Alex and Matthew is developing nicely, stabilising as they add to their family. All the good guys and bad guys are there, both the addition of some exceedingly unsavoury new bad guys.

Occasionally, I wanted to shout “Noooo!” as either Alex or Matthew (mostly Matthew!) did something silly, but that “something” usually racked up the suspense which was deliciously tense throughout. The harshness of the 17th century colonial America for indentured - read slave - labour was grimly described: meagre rations, gruelling, long days of work, beatings and ground-in indifference reminded me of accounts of 1930/40s Nazi Germany.

The timeslip story adds another layer and allows us to engage well with Alex. I hope it’s not a spoiler, but I thought Isaac’s visit was a little short and would have liked to have seen him stranded until the next book, but that’s a personal niggle. The writing is vivid and succinct, drawing you on inexorably to the next chapter. Ms Belfrage, I will be reading your next book very soon.

In want of an absorbing read, I turned to this second book in the series. When I enjoyed the first book, I thought the time slip element was hardly necessary; it was such a good historical novel. During this book, I suddenly ‘got it’ and became hooked and the importance of the time slip gripped me. I was pleased to have more glimpses into the ‘current day’ our heroine, Alex had left behind. Some of my unanswered questions from the first book were dealt with very neatly and convincingly. Anna Belfrage is certainly a wonderful storyteller. I feel lucky to have so much of the series ahead of me.

Amazing. Truly. Have not read a book or series I enjoyed so much for years...not since Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series. Historically accurate, enticingly written...I feel utterly lost now that I have finished the series to date. Matthew and Alex get under your skin. I want more!!! I can't recommend this author enough.

After having read the first novel, I was looking forward to the second book in the series, and I was not disappointed. The characters are by now "part of your family" and it feels good to meet with them once again. Where I am normally not very fond of sci-fi or supernatural kind of stories, Anna Belfrage is using this with care, never letting it take to much room in the stories.

As the characters and story are as fascinating as they are, I immediately bought the third book as well and I am looking forward to dig into it on my vacation.
