This was a interesting and unusual book and don’t feel I can say too much about the story as it would be giving away too much. The book is full of implied questions about mortality and the nature of sin. It is very wordy and descriptive, there isn’t much real time action happening and that for me made it quite slow going. However the story was good for the most part. I’m glad I persevered with it.

This isn't the typical book I'm reading so I was a little bit hesitant about it! Once I started reading I couldn't put it down it was quite interesting and captivating!

I bought this book on a visit to Baddesley Clinton in Warwickshire, which is a charming place. When I started reading the book I thought that maybe I had made a mistake, but I persevered and I became completely captivated by the story. I am now re-reading it and recording the family details given in the story to construct a 'family tree' to give me a better grasp of the characters and the historical background against which this story is set. This book turned out to be a thoroughly worthwhile and memorable read.
