Wow. Susanna Kearsley books just keep getting better and better.
This book was a real page turner for me, and I loved that the element of suspense was at the forefront. There are less of the historical details in the alternative storyline in this one, in fact there is less of the alternative story line period than there usually is, but it really suits this story and it's really well done.
If you want a gentle, well written romance with Gothic overtones, and a "mystery" with a nice twist in the tail, then this is the book for you :-).
