I found “Beneath a Moonless Sky” enjoyable for several reasons: it’s my favorite genre (historical fiction) which also has a sort of mysterious gothic flair. Since I’m a sucker for old English mansions/castles, aristocratic families’ dark skeletons, and yet uncovered murders, this novel quickly became quite a fascinating page-turner for me. Lydie’s character development was delivered superbly. She comes across as far too obedient and passive at first but soon transforms into a strong young woman ...more

Intriguing and suspenseful story from a first time author for me. Lydia lives well with her parents until war breaks out. Then she’s sent to the manor with her uncle. It’s definitely not what it seems, plenty of secrets. Outstanding.

A great story

It is World War II, London is not safe, so thirteen year old Lydia is sent to the country to stay with her uncle in the old family home. There are secrets within the house, and Lydia is determined to reveal the truth.
This is an excellent story, and would have been a 5* read for me had it not been for the poor editing, missing words and incorrect punctuation.

Too many editorial errors

This was very poorly edited. There are many errors that took so much away from this book. Sentences that went complete and words jumbled up made reading frustrating and painful. The story is dark, but ended on a positive note. I wasn't going to finish this book because of the errors, however, plugged along. If this book is edited properly and rewritten, it has potential.
