Vida Winter, a bestselling yet reclusive novelist, has created many outlandish life histories for herself, all of them invention. Now old and ailing, at last she wants to tell the truth about her extraordinary life. Her letter to biographer Margaret Lea - a woman with secrets of her own - is a summons. Vida's tale is one of gothic strangeness featuring the Angelfield family: the beautiful and wilful Isabelle and the feral twins Adeline and Emmeline. Margaret succumbs to the power of Vida's storytelling, but as a biographer she deals in fact not fiction and she doesn't trust Vida's account. Margaret starts to investigate, and two parallel stories unfold, as she begins a journey to discover the truth - her own, as well as Vida's...

9 out of 10

I enjoyed this book immensly. I agree with the comment Mrs. Elizabeth Jane Howard made on the cover of this book: 'Anyone picking up this novel will not be able to put it down. Pick it up!'
The book takes place in what I believe to be fairly modern times, but I could hardly shake the Victorian feel that emmanates from Mrs. Winters story. A beautiful and sad ghost story. Thanks again for sending it to me AliceF.
