I'm still not sure what I thought of this one. It reminded me a lot of Thomas Hardy in a lot of ways, in style and description, and the telling of old country beliefs and superstitions. I thought it was only ok whilst reading it and that not a lot was happening but the story has stuck with me afterwards. I read 'How I Live Now' by Meg Rosoff (that everybody kept raving about) and didn't like it, and this is the same- very emotionless. I live on Salisbury Plain (near Andover) though, and I enjoyed reading about places that I actually know.
