Not super in-depth but told in an Austen-like style. The audio version is ridiculously calming.

This was a phenomenal read, brilliant in the way it establishes its characters and then sat back and pressed play so that the characters may continue to meander along their courses to bounce and collide off of each other.

It's the book version of the line "Still waters run deep". We are taken along to tea time picnics, nursery visits, antique shops, house visits, day to day occurrences. The tension almost silently clicked over at every one of these events, and the discomfort and internal yelling crept up on me so gradually that it really felt true to life.

My own ignorance of the plot made me really immerse myself in the protagonist's own uncertainties. A truly insightful dissection of what drives us and our actions.

A true crime novel about human depravity and the ease with which people slide from mere selfishness into depravity. Written in an eloquent but not florid antique style.

Exquisitely written with care to detail, setting and emotion. It did turn much more tragic than I anticipated...not your usual broken hearted period novel...and it is based on a true story.
