Shadows of Ladenbrooke Manor (Review)
This review is for the book "Shadows of Ladenbrooke Manor", written by Melanie Dobson.
This book attempts to intertwine the past and present. Heather Toulson returns to her parents' cottage in the English countryside, and comes across secrets, family history that has been hidden for a long time, and even discovers the truth about a murder that happened sixty years ago.
The book begins in the 1950's, telling Maggie's story. Then it begins to go back and forth between Maggie's story and Heather's story. To be honest, I was loving Maggie's story, and finding myself pretty bored with Heather's story. I feel that I could have done without Heather's story at all. You will see when you read this book that the two stories do go together, so I understand why Dobson puts them into the book together, but I just found that Maggie's story was much more intriguing. I couldn't wait to get to the next section about her and her family.
I do think this is a very interesting read, nothing like anything I have ever read before, so I do recommend it.
Thank you to Litfuse Publicity for a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
