Exquisitely written by Kate Morton. That is the best way I can describe this book. Because I enjoyed this book so much, I will keep this short to avoid giving anything away.
This time bending novel follows six generations of a family, all revolved around a woman named Nell, to learn her secret.
Excellent character building, Morton kept the cast to a minimum which worked to truly create depth in her characters.
Lots of mystery, suspense, and a touch of sweetness. While this is toted as being a best seller, to me this is a hidden gem.
I think most everyone can enjoy this novel. Some modern characters, some Victorian history, and a touch of fantasy. Even a few things for the science minded.
