Lindsey Oh my goodness, this is one of my favorite books!! If you like this you should try Kate Morton or Kimberley Freeman (Wildflower Hill was spectacular.)

Robin Also try THE LANTERN by Deborah Lawrenson and LEGACY by Katherine Webb. Both are full of gothicy goodness.

Lindsey Robin, both of those books are on my think-I-want-to-read list... Would you compare them to The Thirteenth Tale? I was really very interested but then I read a few less than stellar reviews...

Robin Well.... It's hard to beat 13th Tale and I have to admit neither of these are as stellar, but if you are like me and just want a good gothic-type read, they work. Lantern has been criticized (and probably justly so) that the ending is a little too "women's fiction-y" and Legacy has a historical fiction element that while I liked, not everyone will.

Lindsey Thanks so much, Robin! Legacy looks very good and I have a co-worker that read Lantern and loved it, so with all that + your reviews/recommendations in mind I definitely think I'll check them out! I'll let you know what I thought if you like:)
