A fantastic and haunting book that will stay with you
on 18 February 2013
I bought this book as a gift for my sister because it is one of my favourite books. I have re read it several times and it is just so atmospheric and the characters so good, it really is enjoyable. The relationships between the sisters, the setting, the rivalries for the affections of the artist - and the vicar are what makes it for me. It is utterly compelling.
This is not a crime thriller or a particularly dramatic novel but it is a great read. My sister said she enjoyed it - just hope she didn't think I was sending her some kind of cryptic message about our own relationship....
