I loved Setterfield’s previous novels and fully expected to like this one as well. I was right, I thoroughly enjoyed it. The story sucks you right in and is enchanting. The setting is interesting and the story is unusual. If I have one quibble, there are a lot of characters and changing narrators. All are richly drawn, but it was a bit difficult keeping all the storylines straight at the beginning. However once I got the rhythm I was all in. There’s a bit of what might be termed “magical whimsy” in the story as well so be forewarned if you need to have all loose ends explained realistically. I am already looking forward to her next one. They are an excellent way to spend your reading time.
