"It was solstice night, the longest night of the year... And as the borders between night and day stretch to their thinnest, so too do the borders between worlds... Unexpected things can happen. Did the solstice have anything to do with the strange events at the swan? You will have to judge for yourself."
I absolutely loved this book. Whether you call it historical fiction or fantasy, Diane Setterfield is a fantastic author. Her writing style completely draws you in. The book starts out with a storyteller in the Swan Inn and the author is an amazing storyteller also. The book meanders through different characters and how they react to the little girl who everyone thought was dead. The book is not.very fast paced, and I love how it captures your attention throughout the story.
