I finally sat down and read this as I have to send of to another BCer and I must say WOW.

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.

I found this book waiting for me at the end of a hectic work day...what a treat!
Thanks for the RABCK, josierivers.

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.
