My fav book of the year so far.
Intricate and beautifully written and I loved the premise.
Lovely reading style too.
So hard to picture it began in 1988 rather than early 1900’s.

Brilliantly read by Emilia Fox.
I read this first and needed to hear it again to capture all the detail.
Love Perry’s writing style but this was oh so dark. So oppressive and not a bedtime read but appreciate that’s the desired style and it worked well. Read as though it was set in a much earlier era than 2016 so it was interesting being based on an original from many years ago.
It was a book club read and enjoyed it for the discussions but can’t say I loved it as so gothically dark.
Would have liked a relationship tree at the start as so detailed it was hard to switch and pickup between the strands at times.
