Full of twists and the dark, simmering magic
Sat, 16 Sep 2017 | Review by: Sue H
I found it difficult to get into the story at first, almost as if the weight of the rich, descriptive writing forms a barrier and I was easily distracted. The story sat just beyond the brink, so I could reach out and touch it but not quite able to submerge into the words.
The changeover to a dramatic, gripping and mesmerising story was so smooth, I didnít notice until I realised the day had gone while I was buried within the pages.
The story is as lyrical as it is melancholy. I love the focus on the complexity of the relationships between the sisters and their mother as well as the secrets, the twists and the dark, simmering magic.
