Brilliant ghost story great to read in the winter
Should probably read this one, started on it before Christmas, and forgot all about it 😅📖
1st September read! Freddie Watson, grieving the loss of his brother in the war is caught in a snowstorm and takes refuge in an isolated village and there meets a beautiful, captivating woman. They spend a night talking of love and loss and war. But by daybreak, Fabrissa has vanished and Freddie realised he holds the key to an ancient mystery that leads him deep into the mountains, to a cave that has concealed an appalling secret for 700 years.
Quick, enjoyable read. After finishing, I read the author‘s note about the inspiration behind the story. I would like to learn more about Catharism, a medieval Christian heresy prevalent during the fourteenth century. If you‘re a fan of history, unrequited love, and ghost stories this will be a delicious read. Also, a perfect winter themed book, with the atmosphere and setting.

My reading buddy on this rainy day 😊
Hauntingly atmospheric with a really great cast of central characters. The timeslip between the 1920s and medieval France is so beautifully created with such descriptive elements you really do slip into the pages and become one with the book. Once you start the first page it's pointless trying to put it down, the story stays with you till you finish. Magical!

I stopped at #DollarTree on the way to work for ANOTHER successful book haul! Including one that I ordered and just shipped to my #SummerSantaGoesPostal match. I sent a paperback and found a hardcover for myself. It's one I really enjoyed.
This one came in the mail today too. I got it off #BookMooch Have I told y'all about bookmooch.com? It's a book swapping site, it's in different countries so anyone can use it. You list books you want to give and when someone mooches one you get points to Mooch a book when you find one that you want. The selection isn't always great, but if you are patient you never know what you'll find! More people = more books and a greater variety.
