This is an absolutely fantastic book. I was completely and utterly hooked from page 1. I literally could not put it down. I was exasperated that I had to keep putting it down so I could eat and sleep.
I won't go into the plot of this magnificent story, as other reviewers have covered it, suffice to say that the story is so interwoven between 1911 and 2011 that you never really know what is going to happen next. You are aware that there is a sense of evil building up but as the story twists and turns one is never quite sure who the villain is. The way that Katherine Webb writes is so atmospheric, I could feel the sense of menace building, it was so vividly portrayed. I grew to really like Hester, Cat and Sophie as the plot unfolded.
The only down side to this book is that it had to end. It is truly one book I am so glad I have read, and it will stay with me for a long time. 5 stars is not enough and I highly recommend it.
I am now hungrily devouring The Legacy by the same author. Bliss.
