Obviously, I really really didn't like it. Although I considered toning down what, for me, is a very mean spirited review. And decided it was truthful.
Rose, the daughter of Victoria's housekeeper Peg, is heartbroken because she has loved Orlando forever. Now Lindy is coming to meet Victoria and Peg knows she must keep Rose in line before her daughter causes trouble. However, that week in the nearby cottage shows to all how the hard working Lindy fails to fit in with this "me-me" crowd that includes her new spouse. Then there is what to do with THE VISITOR'S BOOK that she just received from Victoria that explains much about the death of Orlando's "parents".
When THE VISITOR'S BOOK focuses on relationships, readers have quite a serious comedy of errors. However, when the plot twists into a mystery it loses steam. The entanglements caused by adding one person into the various equations are cleverly written so that the audience observes a geometric impact on everyone. Surprisingly readers will feel empathy towards the outsider Lindy who is the only character not afraid to show her feelings without any layers of masks. Fans of deep relationship dramas will conclude that Caroline Upcher has done sub-genre readers a great favor with this gracefully flowing novel.
