Brief Synopsis: When a mysterious letter arrives in the post, Edie feels compelled to delve into the reason why it upset her mother so much. Her trail leads to Milderhurst , a crumbling castle occupied by three spinster sisters and the place Edie’s mother was evacuated to during the war. As Edie investigates the castle’s history and the story behind its inhabitants, more revelations come to the fore.
Good Points: There are loads of secrets to unravel and mysteries to ponder, as well as the book being beautifully written.
Bad Points: I guessed one of the plot twists before it was revealed (although this did give me a smug sense of satisfaction so can’t really be construed as a con)
Good For: A thrilling mystery to get lost in
