The creepy tone of the book is established from the first description of the vine-covered house looking like it's breathing because of the wind, and continues to the creative use of a library in the shape of a labyrinth (I want one). Without the annoying presence of the narrator, this would probably have been one of Vine's best.
The true star of this book is the Swedish nurse, Kerstin Kvist, who puts up with a great deal with understated courage and without losing a hair out of place. Almost not to be outshone is her charge, the grossly over-medicated John Cosway, who we know, from the very beginning of the book, somehow manages to make a getaway to a villa in Italy, there to live the life he has always dreamed. But how on earth does he manage to escape the over-medicating doctor, the demented mother and the four damaged - and somewhat dangerous - sisters? (And not forgetting the love-lorn vicar or the long-lost maze which, somehow, holds the secret to all of this.)
I truly enjoyed this book. It is one of Vine's better books, almost as enjoyable as Asta's Book. Highly recommended. The reader is always on edge, waiting for something in that horrible damp, cold house to go terribly awry - which, naturally, it eventually does.
