Isobel has only been seeing Tom for a few months when she discovers that she is pregnant, and as they both live in tiny flats they have no option but to move into Tom's family home. Isobel has a feeling that all is not as it seems and she wonders whether Tom told her all of his secrets or if Tom's mother, Daphne, is keeping secrets of her own.
The stories are so intriguing and captivating that this was more of a page-turner than I expected. With the heart-rendering addition of letters that Henry has written to Victoria along the way I was amazed that I held my tears in until the end. As the castle gave up all of its secrets, I found myself hoping that they can all now live happily ever after. I received this e-book from the publisher, HarperImpulse, via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
Apr 20, Kayleigh rated it really liked it. This book ticked so many of my book love boxes Mysterious castle, romance, history, secrets! I loved watching the stories of the three women unfold, and seeing how their lives were connected to the castle and to one another and how they dealt with life and love and their hardships across the years. This book is well written and a very enjoyable read - once I started reading, I didn't want to put it down and once I had finished, I found myself thinking over the characters and their stories.
Evelyn was my favourite character, she was so very much true to her generation. My only negative comment is that I wished it had been longer! I have to say I feel very lucky to have only found Hannah's work recently, because I will definitely be adding her back catalogue to my TBR list! I am very grateful to have had the opportunity to read and review this book, and I sincerely hope that Hannah's fans enjoy the new novel as much as I did!
May 03, Heather rated it liked it Shelves: advanced-readers-copy , This book had some suspenseful and interesting parts, and it was a pretty quick read. I was intrigued to find out how all of the characters were linked. I definitely felt like something MUCH worse was going to happen to one of the characters because I kept thinking of Tom from The Girl on the Train for some reason, but I was pleasantly surprised that that storyline wasn't what I expected.
This wasn't my favourite book of the year, but it was an okay read. The changing perspectives felt a bit con This book had some suspenseful and interesting parts, and it was a pretty quick read. The changing perspectives felt a bit confusing at times. Jul 07, Lisa Bergin rated it liked it Shelves: library-loan. This was a reasonably good read and a book I chose because of its cover. It is being marketed if you like Kate Morton or Lucinda Riley and I kind of get the comparison but the book is about half the length of either of those authors books and perhaps it is for this reason I didn't love it.
Their books there is more story development and you lose yourself in them. This one told the story but each of the three inter connecting storylines could have been fuller for me. That said I would read furthe This was a reasonably good read and a book I chose because of its cover. That said I would read further books by this author.

This is a very absorbing book and kept me reading until 3am! It starts with the stories of 3 very different women in 3 different times 40's, 60's and Their stories are all linked in some way to the Castle du Reve. They meet 3 men and the stories unfold through the book. Very emotional and carefully thought out. Really enjoyed it :.
Apr 06, Beverley rated it it was amazing. Three stories, masterfully interwoven, each uniquely narrated and ultimately merging to reveal the secrets surrounding the Castle du Reve.
This is a very well written, intriguing story, with a well executed, slow to be revealed twist. It held my attention throughout with its clever, atmospheric narrative - each story clearly reflected the time within which it was set wonderfully. An extremely satisfying read and one which I would unreservedly recommend.
May 19, L. Williams rated it really liked it. I really liked this book Thrilling it is not, but it is intriguing and well-crafted.
As the story unrolls you begin to see the plot threads, but they are subtly woven in - in a way that only a good author can do. My only wish was to have the characterization of the men as complete as those of the women. Time well-spent, and a story that will stay with me. Aug 24, Jed rated it really liked it. I was surprised at how good this book is. The intertwined stories of three women in the same English seaside town dominated by the castle.
Many outstanding descriptions of experiences and feelings, including one of the best I've read of childbirth. Not surprisingly, the plot is somewhat contrived; but nevertheless, definitely worth reading. Jun 13, Ruth Butor rated it it was amazing. Great story, unexpected ending!!!
