Sarah Broadhurst's view...
One of our Great Reads you may have missed in 2011.
A mix of the occult, murder and love – dual time; 1911 and 2010. It is sparked off by the discovery of the body of a First World War soldier in France who has two letters on him. It is these letters that give us the bulk of this hypnotic tale. Good old-fashioned storytelling at its best.
April 2011 Book of the Month.
The Lovereading view...
From the author of the acclaimed debut, THE LEGACY comes a compelling tale of love, deception, illusion and ultimately murder. It's a real page-turner with plenty of surprising twists and turns and like The Legacy is an unforgettable and deeply satisfying read.

Here's what one of our members thinks of her bag
A big thank you for the two Lovereading bags I ordered, which have arrived safely. I love mine and will use it with pride. The bags are lovely quality, sturdy and support a good cause in the Rewrap initiative; I think they make the perfect accessory for any book lover. The second bag was a gift for my sister and she says she will take it to her next book group meeting to help spread the Lovereading word. Once again, many thanks. Emily Wright
The Unseen by Katherine Webb
England, 1911. The Reverend Albert Canning, a vicar with a passion for spiritualism, leads a happy existence with his naive wife Hester in a sleepy Berkshire village. As summer dawns, their quiet lives are changed for ever by two new arrivals. First comes Cat, the new maid: a free-spirited and disaffected young woman sent down from London after entanglements with the law. Cat quickly finds a place for herself in the secret underbelly of local society as she plots her escape. Then comes Robin Durrant, a leading expert in the occult, enticed by tales of elemental beings in the water meadows nearby. A young man of magnetic charm and beauty, Robin soon becomes an object of fascination and desire. During a long spell of oppressive summer heat, the rectory at Cold Ash Holt becomes charged with all manner of emotions.
ReviewsOccult happenings, romantic passion and murder disrupt the peace of a Berkshire village in 1911 in this hauntingly good novel from the author of The Legacy. MARIE CLAIRE
