Hardcover: 384 pages
Publisher: G.P. Putnam's Sons (February 9, 2016)
Amber Alton knows that the hours pass differently at Black Rabbit Hall, her London family’s country estate, where no two clocks read the same. Summers there are perfect, timeless. Not much ever happens. Until, of course, it does.
More than three decades later, Lorna is determined to be married within the grand, ivy-covered walls of Pencraw Hall, known as Black Rabbit Hall among the locals. But as she’s drawn deeper into the overgrown grounds, half-buried memories of her mother begin to surface and Lorna soon finds herself ensnared within the manor’s labyrinthine history, overcome with an insatiable need for answers about her own past and that of the once-happy family whose memory still haunts the estate.
Stunning and atmospheric, this debut novel is a thrilling spiral into the hearts of two women separated by decades but inescapably linked by the dark and tangled secrets of Black Rabbit Hall.
This was quite a good read. The books goes back and fourth between 2 generations. It was easy to follow, and kept me reading as it was mostly "family secrets". (love that sort of book)
A woman named Lorna finds the home and wants to be married in it. She doesn't know why she is so drawn to this particular place that was so far out of the way. After spending some time in the home with the owner, Mrs Alton, she becomes fearful of the hidden secrets, but winds up staying and discovering why she is so drawn to this mansion.
The best of the last few books I've read recently.
