Janel’s #CBR4 Review 22 The Distant Hours by Kate Morton
I am not a big gothic novel reader, but I do love a good mystery. Morton’s book came recommended so I was curious. I loved the natural curiosity that Eddie had and she showed some emotional growth throughout the book as well. I enjoyed how the book alternated between the historical and present day story. The descriptive prose allows the reader to feel like they are observing the castle along with Eddie. There was a good sense of push and pull with the different mysteries. I was definitely on the edge of my seat multiples times. I have Morton’s The Forgotten Garden on my TBR pile as well.
