I'm about a third in and I've fallen in love with the author's gorgeous descriptions of the manor...and the feeling that something isn't quite right. Reminds me of "Rebecca" and Kate Morton, which means I'd rather be reading this than writing about it right now.

I enjoyed it as I did Birdcage Walk by the same author.

A bit of a slow start but a great ending.

Here is the recipe for a great gothic or Victorian romance: One part crumbling estate, complete with a distant, moody (yet desirable) male heir. One part young, naïve female sent away by the family she has disgraced. Add a creepy caretaker, a staff of servants with secrets, plenty of shadows, and a hint of the supernatural. Mix well, blending equal parts past and present, until the lovers are united in one sweeping and glorious epilogue. I feel like I have read this book again and again, and this one nearly fit the bill. It wasn't fabulous, but it wasn't terrible.

A more-gothic Kate Morton, or a more-emotional Diane Setterfield. Either way, a great rainy night read.

Haunting, alluring. For fans of Kate Morton, who want a page turner that is complex and well-written.

Fiercombe Manor is one of those houses people have always been fascinated by...You glimpse places like it sometimes, usually from a train window. Lonely houses tucked into the countryside, almost hidden in the folds of the hills. You wonder who lives in them, what's happened in their history.
