As I have not completely finished the novel, with a few more chapters to go, I can say the the book grabbed my attention right from the start and it has not lost any momentum. The Characters, are brought to life and the author has given a great insight into the lives of each character. Lots of twists and turns and well as some discoveries for each character. Even the Milk Street house, Garden and dog(Arlo) have their own unique characterization. This novel is enchanting as well as suspenseful. You can only guess at how it will turn out. I fully recommend this novel to everyone. Lots of history mixed in the fiction. Thank You so much Katherine, you have a real winning novel here.
