8 out of 10

A finely crafted, bleak novel of thwarted dreams, murder and mortality. The cover blurb is succinct, so I'll lift most of it:

"In a silent valley in southern France stands an isolated stone farmhouse, the Mas Lunel. Its owner is Aramon Lunel, an alcoholic haunted by his violent past. His sister, Audrun, alone in her bungalow within sight of the Mas Lunel, dreams of exacting retribution for the unspoken betrayals that have blighted her life. Into this closed world comes Anthony Verey, a wealthy but disillusioned antiques dealer from London seeking to remake his life in France..."

There are two more important characters in the story, Veronica ("V"), Anthony's sister, a garden designer, and her lesbian lover, Kitty. The couple have already settled in the Cévennes. Kitty is jealous of Anthony's presence and hopes his stay will be short.

A most absorbing read, if short on light relief.

Checking the Coffee#1 books today while having an early afternooon flat white I came across one of miketroll's contributions to the shelf. I have read and really like The Colour and I'm certainly looking forward to this one.

While reading this I found a copy of The Road Home, unregistered on my bookshelves. I know I'll have to read it, maybe I'm in for more doom and gloom but as long as it is of the same quality as Trespass, I'll be happy.

So you did bring a book for me after all, Cassiopaeia! Thanks a lot! Just picked it up from the Convention's table of temptation.

Unputdownable... what a creepy, brilliant novel... quite right for a gloomy, grey December weekend. Like Cassiopaeia I checked my shelves for more - and found an unregistered copy of Tremain's The Colour.
Highly recommendable.

I really admire Rose Tremain's writing and this was no exception. There was a good plot, great descriptions of the characters to the point of real empathy, the area in the South of France, the Cevennes had been extremely well researched and there was just the right amount of suspense, without making the plot too drawn out.

I also liked the fact that Tremain keeps a sense of reality that not everything in the world ends perfectly, it adds more credence to her work.
