Summary

It's the summer of 1933, and Alice Eveleigh has arrived at Fiercombe Manor in disgrace. Hiding her shame in this isolated house concealed within a Gloucestershire valley in the care of housekeeper Mrs Jelphs, Alice soon begins to sense that something isn't quite right within this beautiful manor. For one thing she is being watched....
There are secrets at Fiercombe that those who remain there are determined to keep. Tragedy haunts the empty rooms, and foreboding hangs heavy in the stifling heat. Traces of the previous occupant, Elizabeth Stanton, are everywhere, and Alice discovers Elizabeth's life eerily mirrors the path she herself is on. The past is set to repeat its sorrows and with devastating consequences.

relaxing and joyful

I found this easy to listen to and was entranced at how well the stories of the past were entwined with the present

High standard historical Neo Victorian Fiction

Impecable narrative, Riordan's interweaved the haunting and spectrality of different women in different eras in England. Riordan's contribution to glance at missunderstood facts as were "puerpural insanities and hysterical manias" making use of objects, pictures and ghosts, providing a refreshing turntaking solution, Is what grants this novel to be included into the Neo Victorian Fiction.
