I devoured this book. I absolutely adored it.
Gothic themes are probably my favorite themes in books. When they are handled well, as in Kate Morton's book, it makes me ache to be a better writer. Family inheritances of secrets and how the past impacts the present. Minds that crack under the weight of these secrets. I love it!
I can't begin to summarize the book. I tried to do so for the Roping Dummy (aka husband), but I couldn't communicate the language of the book and do it justice. Although he seemed to get the idea as he went to bed last night and had dreams about his own current reading.
Note: I posted photos of the North American cover and the UK cover. Which do you like? I think I like the UK cover best, especially after reading the book.
