Kate Morton spins a gothic web of betrayal, lust, love, and the ultimate family bond in The Distant Hours. Told from the perspective of modern day Edie Burchill, the author takes you back to 1940's England during World War II to reveal the secrets that have betrayed the Blythe family. The tale of the spinster Sisters Blythe is centered around Milderhurst Castle, which has been in the family for centuries.
The Distant Hours is beautifully written. As the secrets of "the distant hours" are revealed, the reader should be completely captivated by the decaying castle and its inhabitants.
