I got lost in this quiet study of a woman's life, from youth to old age. Another great work from McDermott.

Songs of Willow Frost: A Novel by Jamie Ford 4 stars This book is about a young Chinese orphan and his eventual re-connection with his mother. It was an enjoyable read but I wasn't very drawn to the character of Willow Frost. It is a sad story of love, loss and longing. 45/2013

    This was a super interesting book. Did you read Raw Shark Texts by chance? Very different, but also messes with your head in some similar ways.

  • Tracey J. Evans

    Raw Shark Texts? Hmmm, haven't read it. Appealing title though. Do you recommend it? Another play-with-the-reader-brain-story is "Tokyo doesn't love us anymore" by Ray Loriga. Actually, we could probably come up with enough titles to make a board ... wandering off pondering

I love all of Kate Morton's novels but this one is my favorite. She writes mystery novels that rely heavily on flashing forward and back in time in the UK. They are all slightly Gothic, painstakingly plotted, and romantic to some degree. I highly recommend them to Anglophiles and mystery/romance lovers everywhere.
