This isn't a book to be read at night - so realistic, such a marvellously eerie setting and story - that it will keep you up and reading until the end! And then have you turning the lights on. Best to set aside a day and curl into a chair with a cup of tea and simply immerse yourself in this wonderful tale that twists and turns between reality and imagination. The author's love of Shakespearean times, her knowledge of history and her understanding of the human spirit resound in every word she writes. A superb read and a book I was very sorry to finish.
