the mood of the book, ambiance and history were lovely. the mystery of it!
Yes - narrator doesn't change voice much at all, and the book will change to a different persons point of view and you have no warning and it can be a bit hard to follow because you never realized it changed characters. And this book jumps between a lot of characters.
incredibly frustrating how much this jumped around. so many different characters, multiple different frames of time, it becomes really rather wearing.
I loved the Forgotten Garden, but this was a disappointment.
An irritating story about two silly women whose lives revolve around a pile of rocks. One of them is a bully, one a spineless, though kind, martyr. The story is additionally about their younger sister whose life is ruined because of the two older sisters and their cruel, nasty father. I did, however, like Meredith and her daughter, Edith. I was glad I used it for one of my credits because it was not worth buying.
I really love the way Kate Morton weaves the story and builds her characters. I was kept hooked till the end... Wondering and wishing good things for them all
Adore the voices by Caroline Lee. They make a wonderful team.
As always, she's written a lovely story. But I cringed each time I heard a cliche - which was far too often. Needed better editing; funny given that the main character's an editor!
So well written the characters came to life. The narrator did a great job and one is able to distinguish who is speaking at any time. So many mysteries just when you think you know what happened something else is revealed to make you second guess.
