Everything is about to change…
I love the dual timeline in this novel. Both stories are equally good and absorbing.
The French Revolution and the Reign of Terror is an excellent backdrop for dramatic scenes. From the outset, I was expecting things to not go too well for the Auberts. But, I found myself not having too much sympathy for Catherine Aubert as she is the archetypical spoilt aristocrat of the era for most of her story.
In the present day, a group of friends find themselves in a position to retire relatively young and buy a chateau together, which seems idyllic and a great adventure. I was expecting there to be some tensions as they settle in together but everything is harmonious. However, the chateau has the reputation of being haunted which leads to one of the new owners to start researching its history. The story is mysterious, tragic and light at the same time.
I just loved how the two storylines came together and mystery of the chateau became revealed.
