TheShadows Of Rutherford House by C E Rose

i am doing this on my ipad as computer has gone on the blink. Excuse any errors. if you want a story that has more twists and turns than a roller coaster this is it. the story istold in several timelines and has many characters chiming in. the characters are very much part of the story but they come in in the then and now. it also seems typical that these old villages have the most complicated histories and that those in the "big house" seem irretrievably linked to the villagers, however much they look down on them or howeverresentful the villagers may be towards the richer folk. Lust and love, resentment and murder all surface in this well crafted story. The final reveal was a surprise for me. if you want a book that keeps you guessing from beginning to end this is one for you. Sent by Hera Books for an unbiased review courtesy of Netgalley
