This is a book that had been sitting on my Kindle for 15 months before I finally got around to reading it. Yes, I ordered this book in mid 2015. It would have been one I read about on Amazon and splurged on, then kind of forgot about. I can’t believe a gem like this was hidden away on my Kindle, because oh my God, what a gripping book! I devoured it in 10 days.
I love all things about old, historical, English estates and the families that fill them. This book had twists and turns I didn’t expect. It covered family secrets and sorrow and the coming of age for four siblings.
Jumping between the now and then, interlinking the two storylines together so cleverly you can’t help but warm to the characters. It’s an easy read, with great description of each character you feel you can see them.
I gave it 5 stars.
