Customer Review

on 5 July 2013
Two interlinked stories, one set in the modern day and the other in 1929 reflecting on the same issues, illegitimacy and homosexuality. In the past I have been a big BV/RR fan but the modern part of this story just didn't ring true and the dialogue and actions were pretty toe curling at times. The 1929 story was better but still there was no real mystery or twist in the tale which used to make BV's novels so addictive.

I hate to say this but I think it would be easier on the reader if BV stopped writing about the younger generation and concentrated totally on times past which we know she can excel at. I would love to see her back to her finest, but sadly for me this was poor.
