    Gothic Intrigue!

    My introduction to Gothic fiction was with the romances of Phyllis Whitney, Victoria Holt and Mary Stewart and I eagerly awaited their newest books to be published. I loved the big, gloomy houses; the handsome,brooding heroes with hidden secrets; and the young heroines who couldn't help but be drawn to those mysterious men. Mystery and intrigue were usually a part of the plots and The Lost History of Dreams certainly fits this description. There are deaths, a glass chapel hidden in the woods, doomed romances, and yes, ghosts. One of the characters even mentions that "love stories are ghost stories in disguise." The story opens in 1850 London and it centers around Robert Highstead, his deceased wife Sada, his famous cousin Hugh de Bonne who has suddenly died, and Hugh's deceased wife Ada. There is also Isabelle, Ada's niece, and as the story progresses, there is a mystery about Isabelle's true identity and just how she could possibly know all of the details of Hugh and Ada's marriage. As a postmortem photographer Robert often seems caught between life and death and both he and Isabelle suffer guilt in the deaths of their loved ones. Is it possible for them to work through their individual grief and move on? Will Robert finally understand that Sida is really gone? Is forgiveness possible for two lost and hurting souls? Lost love, unusual happenings, rich historical detail, and determining what is true and what is imaginary...all of these add to the charm of this story. If you enjoy Gothic fiction, you will certainly find yourself enthralled with The Lost History of Dreams. I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author. There was no obligation for a positive review. I am voluntarily sharing my honest thoughts in this review.
