Challenge checklist - Gothic Reading Challenge; RIP 6; 2nds Challenge; Aussie Author Challenge
Kate Morton book list - The House at Riverton, The Forgotten Garden, The Distant Hours
Gothic checklist- romance and horror, castles, secrets, madness, darkness
Raidergirl's good book checklist - England, sisters, back and forth in time (parallel stories), bookish mysteries
Morton created many well developed characters that I really enjoyed reading about. I liked the war story, and the present day story. The relationships between all the characters seemed real, and the secrets were tantalizingly revealed. The ultimate secrets weren't as dramatic as I was imagining, but the journey to get there was well worth my time. Excellent book for the RIP season, and to finish off the Gothic Book Challenge for me.
