a wonderful YA surprise!

Loved the narrator, the plot had great twists but moved at a solid pace. Great historical bits and a solid heroine. My favorite character was Uncle Tully who with which this book would have had no purpose. He was written with great thought and tenderness and I will be hearing bits of his dialogue in my head for a very long time.

Pure Gothic Pleasure

Both this title and its predecessor, A Dark Unwinding, provide pure gothic entertainment following the tried and true gothic formula--an orphaned heroine journeying to unknown relatives, two potential love interests--one dark, one light--a surly housekeeper, potential insanity, an inheritance. What distinguishes them from gothic drivel are Katherine's Uncle Tully, a loveable autistic savant, and Katherine herself, who learns to take matters into her own hands rather than wait for rescue. Because the author has followed the traditional gothic formula, the listener will be able to predict some details. Ms. Cameron, however, delights in finding other ways to surprise. Her characters develop beyond their 2-dimensional prototypes and provide delightful suspense. While not necessarily "improving literature," both books are excellent stories, well narrated. Worth the credits.
