4.0 out of 5 starsA departure for me personally
Reviewed in the United States on October 23, 2006
This book is a departure for me. The book is a ghost story, and it is romantic suspense. Anyway, I understand that this book is also a departure for Christianna Brand. Since this is the first book that I've read of hers, I cannot attest to whether or not is is a different genre for her, but I intend to read other more conventional ttles from this author. Ms. Brand is an excellent author, and she has an uncanny sense for creating a sense of time. This book is about a 400 year old curse that has haunted the young brides of the Hillbourne family. It is also about twins, and the changing of places that occurs all the time with identical twins. The book is creepy as befits a good ghost story, and it leaves a chill when it is finished. A very good story, and an excellent ghost story.
