Gilbert's latest voluminous romance (A Walk in the Wood, 1989 etc,), rustling with mystery and old scandals, features broody characters tending inner fires of passion or revenge, an attractive heroine, and, again lovely English country environs. Esther Aumery, daughter of weak Edwin and spendthrift, flighty Flora, the owners of an elegant estate, will have reason to remember that summer morning in 1914 when she sees a horse-drawn cart, full of bundles, rattling down an unused road, driven by a man with a sick, desperate face.

Years after discovering an unknown young girl abandoned in a small English village, two idealistic young lovers, Daniel and Esther, who are planning to marry find themselves confronted by a mysterious woman seeking to destroy their relationship. ISBN13:9780312140557.

But Gilbert spends much of the book coaxing out even the shyest creativity with a kind of extended pep talk . In broad strokes, Big Magic constitutes good advice.

But Gilbert spends much of the book coaxing out even the shyest creativity with a kind of extended pep talk: Creativity is inside all of us, it should be expressed, and it is not selfish or crazy or foolish to do so - it is, in fact, the best way to live a satisfying life.

The 54 year-old presenter, known for his angry rants and social media battles with high-profile celebrities, described Harry and Meghan’s decision as spiteful treachery against their own family. Wow. What a disgraceful way to treat The Queen. Shame on Harry & Meghan. Piers Morgan (smorgan) January 8, 2020. No, that's what spiteful treachery against your own family looks like. Yep. And the shameless spoiled brats are going to get torched back.

Esther Aumery is excited. She has a present for Daniel, the grounds-keepers' son, for whom she has a strong attachment. She wakens at dawn to the sound of a cart driven wildly. Looking out the window, she sees a face of pure evil that she will never forget.

Later that morning before school, she and Daniel with the other villagers find a girl dressed in a filthy rags stuffed under a hedge on the main road. Daniel carefully removes the girl from the hedge wraps her in a blanket and makes arrangements for her to be taken to the workhouse, but on the way there she disappears.

The village settles back to normal, but that isn't the whole story. Later, Clary a maid in the village manages to keep Daniel and Esther apart. Esther marries Gervase Lincoln, the owner of Barrow Hall whose young daughter disappeared causing the death of his wife. Daniel agrees to marry Clary believing that she is pregnant. However, the question of who she really is hovers over their lives.

This is a dark book with plenty of intrigue reminiscent of the Brontes. The pace is leisurely spanning the time from before to after WWI. The story moves slowly with a great deal of beautiful description that draws you into the life of the village.

From my point of view the problem with this novel is not the setting or the plot, but the characters. Daniel and Esther seem flat. Many highly emotional events happen to them and around them, but for me they remained static.

I recommend this book if you enjoy long, dark, novels, but if you're interested in good characters, this many not keep you interested.

I received this book from Net Galley for this review.

I know i loved it and couldn't put it down, but I can't adequately say why. The story is gripping, the plot intriguing. The writing is first class. There is allusion to violence and sexual encounters, but its not graphic and yet the description is adequate for the imagination. I felt like I was there and could picture every scene, colour and felt the emotion - such was the caliber of the author's description. The third person is used but from alternating characters and perspectives, so that gives the story depth and gives the reader a chance to get personally invested in the various characters. The characters are so real.

There are no spoilers here, I am being careful....I could not imagine how this book would end and I do wish certain imagined endings had happened. But the endings are what people would say are truer to reality than those I would have imagined. There was one plot point I felt could have ended a bit less loosely and one other I wish was more fully explained, but it doesn't detract from the writing or the story.

Give it a read if you are in the mood for dark intrigue that involves, romance, pathos, vulnerability with strength of character.

I found this book to be so absorbing, so intriguing that I could barely put it down and stayed up much too late (or early, depending on your point of view) at night. So well written that my moods shifted with the characters, I felt their joy, their pain, their disappointment, uncertainty and fear. The time frame (early 1900s to perhaps the 1940s) was a perfect backdrop to the story within - a time of major change for both the country and characters. I thought the first book (Images of Rose) that I read of Ms. Gilberts (or Ms. Gascoigne, rather) was good but this one was even better. On par with Daphne Du Maurier, I am now on a quest to read even more of her offerings. RIP.
