The Distant Hours
If you like mystery, then you are in for a treat. Narrator and central character Edith Burchill's mother was evacuated from London as a child and ended up spending over a year with the Blythe sisters. Her mother is tight-lipped about her stay there and there have been two suspicious deaths and one disappearance linked to the Blythe family. Will Edith get the answers she is seeking in order to understand the Blythe story and consequently, her mother?
There's some good writing in this literary suspense that keeps you trucking despite its long-windedness. If you happen to see it on a bookshelf, grab it, a long cool drink and sit on your patio/deck for a summer mystery treat.
