    This was as usual excellently written and that I c

    I Have to admit though I usually love this author's work this really wasn't my favourite of her books. I did finish The Ghost Tree though it took me much longer than a book from this author usually does to complete. I still think this was a somewhat solid read just not quite up to what I've come to expect. This is definitely in her usual style but in this story, Erskine has delved into her own family tree for her inspiration and maybe there lies some of the problem. I just wasn't as invested in the overall story unfolding here as I usually am maybe because it failed initially to grab and retain my attention. I also found this overly long and I did find my attention wavering throughout. Skipping back and forth this tale is told cleverly managing to weave a story steeped in history, suspense and ghosts that feel they have an axe to grind from past through to present. There were two distinct narratives being told here and I think I was slightly more in tune with what had gone against what was to come. But all strands do eventually convene at a single point in time. I became more invested here the further I read but I also felt this ended rather abruptly and things were not explained fully to my complete satisfaction. So this was very much up and down for me some things appealed to me more than others. I failed to establish a good connection here and that did affect my overall experience I will still be reading this author's next book as she is one that has become an auto-buy for me over the years: But this one just wasn't really my complete bag and I did struggle slightly. This was as usual excellently written and that I cannot fault it on. I voluntary reviewed an Arc of The Ghost Tree All opinions expressed are entirely my own.
