Review for House Of Shadows by Nicola Cornick

Review for House Of Shadows by Nicola Cornick

 

 

 

 

The House of Shadows takes us through a story of three women, from three different times who have many things things in common even though they have never met. How could this not draw your attention, it certainly had mine.

The story is give to us from the 16th and 18th century and the present, and from these times we meet these very strong women. They might have come from these very different times, but have a lot more in common than you would think. The historical aspects of each time period were vividly described, especially Ashdown, but being that I an mot all that familiar with the 1600’s nor the 1800’s I did have a little bit of difficulty …

Review for The Silent Fountain by Victoria Fox

Review for The Silent Fountain by Victoria Fox

 

 

 

 
The Silent Fountain is a gothic and historical romance with a little bit of suspense mixed too. This house has some sinister things going on it. What more could I ask for?

Fox takes us back and forth between Vivien Lockhardt in the 70’s and Lucy Whittaker in the present, and it done so with such grace that it flows right into each other. Never confusing, just completely enthralling and with a pace that kept me turning the pages to see what was going to happen. Vivien is one those characters who you love, but then you want to hate all at the same time. In the end, I found Vivien to be a wonderful woman, and felt her story deep …
