This series is one of my favourite new discoveries. I wonder why I’ve never heard of it before this year. I didn’t think this book was quite as good as the previous one, No Birds Sing, but it was pretty damn good. Again I was impressed by the depth of the characters and the coherentness of the plot.

The overall theme of the book is interesting and the fact that the theme doesn’t become clear until near the end makes it all the more realistic.

(this is book 5 in the castlemere series)
