Thank you to Goodreads Firstreads Giveaways! And to Dark Alley/Harper Collins publishers as well as the author Jeffrey Ford for this remarkable book.
Gothic, ghost story, historical fiction. Told in flashbacks that jumped around, but once I got used to the style it made sense (both literally and as a storytelling device).
History – the more things change through the decades, the more they stay the same. Politically timely.
I read this more slowly than I read a lot of books. I enjoyed the story, the world, the language, so much, I didn’t want it to end. I especially didn’t want to leave the historical universe.
Great acknowledgements by the author at the end. Exactly how I like my historical fiction, with references and recommendations for further reading.
Jeffrey Ford is a new favorite author, I will be looking up his previous books and looking forward to future publications.
