  • Was okay but hard to follow the time lines

    I have read all of Kate Morton's previous novels and loved every one of them. I was really excited when I saw that she had a new book out. However, I did not like the way this book was written. There were way to many time frames, was always confused as to what year she was in. Sometimes it said it at the beginning of the chapter and sometimes it didn't. Way to many characters to keep track of.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • The Clockmaker’s Daughter

    I was looking forward to the new Kate Morton but was sadly disappointed. I found it very confusing keeping all the characters and various time frames straight. I considered abandoning it but carried on until the end. Left unimpressed.

  • Interesting

    I found this Kate Morton novel more disjointed than previous ones. Certainly interesting, but not as bewitching.

  • Not Kate Morton's best

    I've read and really enjoyed all of her books so far and found this one so disappointing. Too many characters, too many with 2 or 3 names. Too much jumping around into different times and dates. Too many loose ends. And the ending was very weak and rushed.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Clockmakers daughter

    The manor house is really the chief character and from the 16 hundreds on and the need for priest holes the author weaves intrigue into the plot.coinstances and unexpected relationship make for good yarns, but there is a plethora i this story and it overwhelms the narrative. Discussions I have has with other readers ( all experienced at reviewing) all felt the changes were to abrupt and obscure. I am very familiar with environs of Swindon, and somehow this seemed like an excursion catalogue.nevertheless,some good bits of writing and nice evocation of of atmosphere.

    Thanks for your feedback!
