The Distant Hours (2010)

The Distant HoursThe Distant Hours by Kate Morton

How could I NOT choose to read next a book whose cover jacket compares it to Ian McEwan's Atonement and Carlos Ruiz Zafon's The Shadow of the Wind?

  1. Received this for Christmas. Have you read her other two?

  2. No. I don't even know what made me add this title to my list. Probably reviewed in Entertainment Weekly. I'm thinking about putting together a 'gothic' list. I've read some good ones in the last couple of years.

  3. "Allowing herself a moment's hesitation, Percy climbed the first step, then the next, remembering the thousands of times she'd run through the door, in a hurry to get to the future, to whatever was coming next, to this moment." (Love that - "in a hurray to get to the future")
