I have a difficult time with first person points of view, and this novel is all first person. The story was also a little predictible for me.

This book is a wonderfully atmospheric Gothic novel; most of the book takes place on the British estate of Walthamstow at the beginning of the 1800 century. Ariel Margaret Rushdon wants to punish her former lover, Nicholas Wyndham.

Through no actions of her own, Ariel was committed to an asylum for two years. During that time, her newborn was taken from her by the Wyndham family. Ariel wants her baby back and she wants Nicholas to be punished for his shabby treatment.

Hired on as a model for Nicholas' artistic efforts, Ariel quickly realizes that Nicholas is a physical and emotional wreck. His memory is scattered and he paints at the oddest times. Through her anger of Nicholas marrying the woman he promised her he would reject, Ariel finds herself falling under his spell again.

The plot revolves on a convenient set of coincidences but the mystery is engaging.

Love lost and regained. This is a great historical romance. I always enjoy Sutcliffe's novels.
