Review

This riveting adventure proves irresistible from beginning to end -- Booktrust

From the Inside Flap

"That night, I dreamed of Eve for the first time in many years. She rocked me while I cried, as she had not rocked me since the night my mother died, and spoke softly of a place called Eden…"

Devastated by the death of the beloved grandfather who raised her, precocious young pianist Eleanor Rose heeds the words of the unknown woman in her dream. Leaving the security of her privileged life in Boston, she heads for Eden’s Meadow, a Louisiana estate which she has never seen, and which has been closed since her grandmother died there mysteriously twenty-five years earlier. She longs for a tranquil haven in which to nurse her grief and concentrate on her music, and at first Eden’s Meadow seems to be just that. But Eleanor’s shocking discovery of a forgotten painting, the timely arrival of a letter from a man who seems to hold the answers to the questions it raises, and her growing love for an enigmatic Russian musician draw her into a labyrinth of past and present deception, which ultimately threatens her sanity and her very life. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I read this book after discovering "Bound" by the same author. Apparently this is her first book. While it isn't quite as polished as her later novels it is no less a page turner. Bryant has a wonderful talent for pulling the reader into both time and place, in this case Boston and Louisiana in both past and present times. It really has everything - love triangle, ominous mood settings, enigmatic strangers, past mingling with future, lonely woman trying to make sense of it all and most of all music; the theme which seems to run so stongly through all of Bryants books. A romance to remember.

This is an entertaining update on the southern gothic novel that blends elements of the supernatural, family saga, and haunted house mystery with a love story - a little like Jane Eyre set in early twentieth century America with a plot full of swapped twins, incest, murder, madness, hysteria and love.

On the ngative side, the setting is oddly nebulous: the characters seems more C19th english than early C20th American (and I only know they're early C20th because they reference the sinking of the Titanicand the Russian Revolution).

Howver the story itself is engaging with charcters who are more than the usual cardboard cut-out figures (though they do deteriorate a little towards the end) and the melodrama is subordinated to the story-telling.

Not a literary masterpiece, but a really entertaining and unobtrsuively written story that kept me up late turning the pages to read just one more chaper before sleep.

I was very kindly sent this book for 'free' by Snowbooks, and as soon as it came through the post, I began reading it. I loved the cover of this book and knew I was in for a treat.

It's the first time I have read a novel like this. I am a big fan of Historical fiction, but I have never read a novel that contained information on Classical music. I'm not really even a fan of Classical music and yet, I found myself completely taken in with this book.

The author described the surroundings with a lot of detail and I was taken in by the story, I felt as though I was there with them, and I was living Eleanor's life with her, going through each trial in trying to solve her Mothers past. In the chapters when Alexander and Eleanor played the Piano together and also at other times on their own, I was taken in by this and I was able to visualise the effect the music had on them, it seemed to reach out to me. This was one of my most favourite parts of the book. I'm now considering listening to some Classical music. See what this novel has done to me! ;)

I could go on to describe lots more about this book, both Eve and Elizabeth play an important part in this novel, but to go on would only give the plot away and possibly ruin it for others.

For me this book was a beautiful love story that I didn't want to end, but it was also sad. If you like novels that contain history, hauntings, suspense and romance, then this book is for you.

This is one of the best books I have read this year. I will definitely be reading more by this author.

I found myself mostly glued to the pages of this book. The only bits I found slow were with reference to piano's and music, since I am not a musician I found it hard to follow. I was left with a couple of questions at the end, but maybe I missed something! I also found Eleanor's love for Alexander hard to comprehend, after what she discovered about him, but that's the joy of fiction; It's a story!

All in all, very enjoyable and worth a read.

Because I did not know the author, I took a chance and purchased this book. This new author mesmorized me with the richness of her story and the vivid descriptions. The images stayed with me long after I turned the last page. I look forward to reading more of her work.
