The Hidden Shore (#19) by Cynthia Harrod-Eagles

“Does it hurt? Is she in pain?” 

Another solid entry in the The Morland Dynasty saga.

This book was far superior to its predecessor. It had the tone of a book which involves an otherwise simple woman realizing she has inherited a fortune, which she uses to do good. Charlotte’s transformation through the story was nuanced, even though to begin with it is hard to imagine being completely isolated away from society norms and conventions.

The book was sad and shocking in equal measure. In the entirety of the book, there were multiple plots with plenty of reference to previous generations. This was all handled adroitly, and didn’t distract from the current plotline.

Oliver Fleetwood turning up at the end seemed a bit too neat, but compared to previous books, that is not the most extreme plotline ever written within the narrative.

MY RATING: ***.5 / *****
