it was amazing
bookshelves: romance, suspense
Read from December 29 to 30, 2011

Rather than the sunny mediterranean areas that I associate with Mary Stewart, this one's set in the mists and rains of early summer on the Isle of Skye at the time of the coronation of QE2 and the 'conquest' of Everest. It's fast-paced and gripping but with a level of sophistication that I possibly missed when I first read it in my teens. If I spotted the culprit early on it's because a hundred lesser gothic novels have made free with the plot, but that's no fault of Stewart's and did not lessen my enjoyment. Great stuff.
