In the summer of 1862, a group of young artists led by the passionate and talented Edward Radcliffe descends upon Birchwood Manor in rural Oxfordshire. Their plan: to spend a secluded summer month in a haze of inspiration and creativity. But by the time their stay is over, one woman has been shot dead while another has disappeared; a priceless heirloom is missing; and Edward Radcliffe’s life is in ruins. Over 150 years later, Elodie Winslow, a young archivist in London, uncovers a leather satchel containing two seemingly unrelated items.

Missing the Ending

Overall
2 out of 5 stars

Awesome until the end. It ends abruptly with a lot of unanswered questions, so much so that I thought the book had not downloaded properly and tried over and over to get the entire book downloaded. Unfortunately that was the entire book. I wish I had not read it at all now. It was beautifully written and hard to put down. What a letdown at the end. The other books by
this author are incredible!
