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.

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
