"Beneath the Shadows" by Sara Forster was a wonderful good Gothic mystery thriller. You will be guessing from the start till the end on how this author creates such a crafty story. You will be found not wanting to put down "Beneath the Shadows" as you journey through this ride with Grace.
"Beneath the Shadows" opens with Grace, Millie and her husband Adam who have just inherited their home from Adam's grandparents. The story takes place in the 'English Moors'...Adam has now disappeared....only leaving Millie(their baby girl) on the porch. Now, Grace has returned to the isolated cottage from France where her parents live to go through boxes and things that belonged to her husband Adam. For Grace the only thing on her mind was just where was her husband and why had he left her? Ms. Forster will keep you guessing from chapter to chapters...and you will only find out in the end. This is where I say you must pick up "Beneath the Shadows" to find out what
has happened to Adam.... so get started reading! "Beneath the Shadows" is a very fast-paced with a lots of twist and turns.... a excellent mystery that will keep you interested and on the edge of your seat.
The characters were all good.... some a little strange but mostly likable and interesting. There was Grace, Adam, Millie, Annabel,Jake, Meredith Constable Niall Edwards, Constable Barton, Ben, Bess, Claire, Jenny, Veronica, Rachel, Jonathan Templeton( Jonny), Dan, Stephen, Carl, Emma, Jake, Liza,
Josephine, Timmy(ha-ha), Feathery Jack and I am sure I have left a few out. However, one thing for sure is that Grace as some character...brave, strong and was determined to find some closure for herself and her daughter, Millie. And if you pick up this wonderful read...you will not be disappointed.
If you are in for a wonderful gothic mystery... you have come to the right place ....for "Beneath the Shadows" and I would recommend this novel to you as a excellent read.
