A little girl arrives alone in Australia. What an intriguing beginning to this family story that tells of three generations of women and their seeming connection to the Montrachet family at Blackhurst Manor on the coast of Cornwall in England. But, therein is the mystery! The Authoress is perhaps the central character, a teller of children’s fairy stories and much, much more. I liked Morton’s first book, The House at Riverton, with its theme of secrets. This one is similar, a good read. Some might find this 500 -page book hard to follow if not read in long settings. It skips back and forth in time and while the characters are all inter-connected, it would be easy to lose the story, I think. Since I couldn’t stop seeing what came next for these women that wasn’t an issue for me!

Loved this book. Bouncing around between 1913, 1975 and 2005 was no problem as each section was labeled and each had its main character. A tale about tales and about families, love and redemption. Hated to see it end.
