Journal Entry 4 by 4evagreen at Furness Vale, Derbyshire United Kingdom on Sunday, November 05, 2017

6 out of 10

Overall I found this an enjoyable read but it failed to really hit the mark with the intrigues not quite strong enough to rescue the book. Uncle Philip is largely absent from the book as he toils in his workshop and personally I would have liked to see him have an greater presence. Also the ending has rather strong echoes of Jane Eyre. All in all the book does not quite live up to it's fascinating opening but is still a worthwhile read.
