Such a wonderful book, not what I would call a 'beach' read because the mood of it is more set to a rainy or snowy weekend, inside snuggled under the covers unfolding a mystery into the past. Morton is such a fantastic writer, characters come alive in your mind and the land in which they live settle around you. She seems to have an innate gift of using the overlapping timelines in history to lead the reader through the story she has created. I highly recommend this book, especially if you have a soft spot for history, both her books I've read use history in such a intriguing and lively way. Can't wait to start her next novel!
