2010 Release: The Distant Hours by Kate Morton

I'm a little late to the game on Kate Morton books, but I just picked up my first one, The Forgotten Garden and then saw that she has a new one coming out in November.  Her books tend to get mixed reviews - from hated it to loved it - but I want to find out for myself!

Release Date:  November 9, 2010

SYNOPSIS: Edie Burchill and her mother have never been close, but when a long lost letter arrives one Sunday afternoon with the return address of Millderhurst Castle, Kent, printed on its envelope, Edie begins to suspect that her mother's emotional distance masks an old secret. Evacuated from London as a thirteen year old girl, Edie's mother is chosen by the mysterious Juniper Blythe, and taken to live at Millderhurst Castle with the Blythe family: Juniper, her twin sisters and their father, Raymond. In the grand and glorious Millderhurst Castle, a new world opens up for Edie's mother. She discovers the joys of books and fantasy and writing, but also, ultimately, the dangers. Fifty years later, as Edie chases the answers to her mother's riddle, she, too, is drawn to Millderhurst Castle and the eccentric Sisters Blythe. Old ladies now, the three still live together, the twins nursing Juniper, whose abandonment by her fiance in 1941 plunged her into madness. Inside the decaying castle, Edie begins to unravel her mother's past. But there are other secrets hidden in the stones of Millderhurst Castle, and Edie is about to learn more than she expected. The truth of what happened in the distant hours has been waiting a long time for someone to find it...



  1. I was one of those who loved her previous book so hopefully will wait for this and try to get it (at some time)!

  2. This is the one that has the awesome trailer that I posted a couple of weeks ago!

    Did you get a chance to take a look? If not here's the link

  3. Sigh, it is becoming discouraging. I have such a pile of books at home and such a long list of those I want to read. Then along comes one like this that promises a nice read while curled up in a chair with a cup of something warm. I need more time to read!
