Two Mini Reviews: Black Rabbit Hall and The Woman at 72 Derry Lane
Black Rabbit Hall by Eve Chase
I don't know why it took me so long to pick this book up, but I'm glad I finally did. Black Rabbit Hall a clever, engaging story about a family, a house and the secrets it holds. The writing is wonderfully evocative and the characters well-developed and intriguing. The multiple POVs and jump back and forth in time are done so well, and add great intricacy and depth to the story. I am already looking forward to reading Eve Chase's new book, The Wildling Sisters. Recommended!
The Woman at 72 Derry Lane by Carmel Harrington
I definitely got more that I expected from this book, which I initially thought was a fluffy chick-lit. It's a thoughtful story told wonderfully from various viewpoints. The characters are multi-dimensional and real and the story both tragic and hopeful. Recommended
