Most of their problems could have been solved if they had pulled out their daily planner books and set a time for a long overdue discussion.
Minor distractions included things such as the men in the wedding party wearing top hats. Today, men seem to wear any headgear, including ball caps, they please during a church service, but at the time of the setting of this story, men wearing hats during a church service would have been unthinkable.
And the h, Laura, begins as a free-thinking suffragette, who then takes one look at the H and becomes a subservient mouse of a wife.
Lots of good Gothic atmosphere is packed into this book, but one of the greatest mysteries is: Why so many rave reviews?
Why not 5 stars? The villain was too easy to work out from early on.
I recommend this book. I'm off to find some Victoria Holt books as the author mentioned that they were her inspiration.
A few things bothered me about the characters, though, which is why I only gave this book a 4-star rating. First, if the couple had just communicated better, they wouldn't have had so many issues. Second, the H was just too secretive and too quick to assume that the h would be as bad as his first wife. Third, the h was an independent suffragist in the beginning of the book -- but after she marries, she becomes a mouse who can no longer stand up for herself -- What's up with that?
