A very good story line but it could have used a little bit more spark. It seemed to just fall flat. There wasn't any passion. I wasn't looking for a Harlequin Romance, cheesy mushy lovey dovey romantic story. This is a love story, it just lacked all the excitement of a love story.

I have read almost all of Anya's books and this is one of my favorites. I couldn't put it down. I love it that the history part is true also. I had no idea of what it was like back then until this book made it all real for me.

I enjoyed reading this book. It is a true "gothic" tale which takes place during the 1840's in New York and concerns the old Patroon system of land ownership. It reminded me of "Rebecca" and also of "Jane Eyre" and although I have just read it for the first time, I do remember seeing the movie years ago. I recommend the book highly.

This book is the 1971 printing. Page 211 does have a tear, however, it is still readable.

What was the evil that haunted Dragonwyck? Miranda Wells had lived a simple life on her father's farm for eighteen years. Then an invitation came from a distant relative. He was the dashing Nicholas Van Ryn and his manor house on teh Hudson had thirty rooms and twenty servants. With the discovery of elegance and love, the innocent farm girl became a great lady. But even then then she could not avoid the evil that stalked the halls of Dragonwyck.
