House of Shadows- Nicola Cornick

house

A beautiful story set in 3 timescales, starting in the 1600’s, then 1800’s and up to the present day. It really is beautifully written and truly atmpospheric.
In the present day Holly is looking for her brother who has disappeared, whilst researching their family tree. She travels to the Old Mill house and finds a diary from the 1800’s written by Lavinia. She looks for clues in the history that might help explain. She’s also drawn to a beautifully decorated mirror- just what connection does that provide?
It is really lovely to read more about the different characters in time and be transported into different worlds. You are totally absorbed in each time scale and the characters lives. Love runs through the book and shows how different times affect whether relationships can work.
With many thanks to the publisher and Net Galley for the chance to read this one in exchange for an honest review.
