It'd be 3.5 stars . . . Loved the premise. Set in late 19th century London, fourteen year-old Lucy is shocked when a woman shows up on her front door step - looking exactly like her mother!

Twins can never be a good omen in gothic thrillers, and of course, once again they aren't, and terrible things begin to befall the family.

There was one scene I was genuinely shocked at (yay! I love surprises), the ending didn't surprise me - but it was very good, and the characters were interesting (I even grew to love Aunt Martha) . . . but I couldn't give the book more stars because it is slooooooow. You have to have quite the persistence to get through the first third of the book - yes, the author's slowly building the tension, but it's a realllly slow build.

All in all, great story, just found it slow to get going.
