I first read this as a teenager and was enchanted by the tale of nineteenth-century encounters in mist-shrouded forests - romantic, yet sinister. Having just re-read the book as a mature woman, I have to say that I enjoyed it just as much. The story is wonderful, the plot is incredibly well-structured and the writing is superb. I now want to read all of Victoria Holt's books again.
