review 1: I wanted to like this, the summary was good and so was the first chapter but it soon became a chore to read. Emily didn't spark a lot of interest and Isabel (the main character from the 50s timeline) soon became annoying. Specially when she couldn't connect with her own baby and ...

review 1: I have read all but one of Rachel's book and the cover of this one seduced me big time - I just had to walk through that gate - This intriguing storyline had me hooked from the word "go" .... part of the book was set in my beloved Suffolk which Rachel describes beautifully and th...

review 1: This is a pretty good book with a weak title. I almost didn't pick it up to read because the title was so lame. But I'm glad I decided to try it. This combines mysteries from the 1700s and the early 1900s with some strange family actions in the present. Judith (Jude) is the h...

review 1: I enjoyed this book, it is the story of a girl now being told as an old woman, and her friendship with a family during her teen years and then later in the war. I have to say that even though I had guessed the ending it made me very angry with the characters and I thanked this ha...

review 1: I find this a difficult book to review. At times I found I didn't want to put it down, and times, I found I was reading it, because I just did not want to give up. I never really engaged with the cast, and could not understand truly why the lead females Fran and Laura would hav...

review 1: I agree with the other reviews that disliked this book. I've read a couple of Rachel Hore's books, especially enjoying 'A gathering storm' and thought I'd give this a go. It was as if it was written by a different author entirely. I didn't care at all about any of the characters,...

review 1: As a fan of Rachel Hore's other books, I expected good things from this novel. However I found the story a bit slow-moving, as though the author had bitten off more than she could chew. I enjoyed the setting and the conflict of Beatrice's relationship with the Wincanton family,...

review 1: I very much enjoyed Place of Secrets by the author and found this book even better. In fact once I started to read I found it difficult to put down. It's an easy read yet a compelling one. Set in both modern and Victorian times the present day story is about the restoration of a ...
