The Distant Hours
2 journalers for this copy...
"....Haunting tale of long-buried secrets and the twists of fate that can alter lives forever"
I had a hard time putting this book down. The author did a great job of interweaving each character's story into the main one... like a jigsaw puzzle each piece fell into place to provide the picture of Milderhurst Castle and it's occupants past and present.
I truly enjoyed this book.

Update: I can't believe I waited so long to read this marvelous book! Kate Morton weaves a perfect blend of past and present with wonderful descriptions of Milderhurst, the castle whose walls "whisper the stories of the distant hours". Family secrets, eccentric characters, romance, and madness all make this book difficult to put down.
Kate Morton not only wrote a terrific story, but her prose is beautiful and flowing; she really knows how to turn a phrase! This is the first book I've ever read by her, but it certainly won't be my last.
Update: My sister loved it!
