    Some years ago, I read Elizabeth Harris s first book, The Herb Gatherers and I loved it I don t know why I didn t read any until now when I picked up this one This is a well constructed novel and I love Ms Harris s prose she gives us an idyllic view of wartime Sussex in the small village of Firlebury where Clare and husband Will move to shortly after their wedding They have a beautiful cottage on the edge of the village very close to the pond where, for some reason, Clare finds unsettling each time she passes it It is not long before Will is sent off to war and Clare finds herself pregnant Life is hard as she knows few people and with rationing she has to make do They appear to be a friendly bunch who are happy to help including the enigmatic Lily Carpenter, an elderly lady who offers Clare the use of a lovely cradle for the soon to be born Michael He arrives a few day s ...

    The Twilight Child offers up a delicious prospect a vintage, WWII setting with a time slip element and than a whiff of the supernatural Just my cup of tea And how lovely, how rare, it is when something not only lives up to expectation, but exceeds it.Newlyweds Clare and Will have settled in the idyllic, ancient Sussex village of Firlebury Replete with village green and friendly locals, life in their tumbledown cottage is perfect, serene Their happiness is made complete when Clare discovers she is pregnant But threats to their bliss loom on the horizon Will is called to serve his country, and as the dark pall of war hangs over the countryside an even darker, unspeakably ancient force threatens the safety and lives of both Clare and newborn Michael, left alone to fight the violence engulfing them Alone, that is, until a mysterious stranger becomes their protector Elizabeth Harris is evidently a fan of Thomas Hardy not only is the Wessex bard oft quoted, his spirit is invoked throughout in the verdant, bosky settings, superstitious and beautifully drawn locals and the exquisite rendering of times past There s even a character named Gabriel, who, like his Hardyan namesake, averts disaster from a lone female protagonist Hardy is my favourite author, so these allusions d...

    I received this book from NetGalley for an honest feedback The theme of the book was dark and intriguing which excites me even I love the style of writing here The book was well written and the style of writing was easy to follow It was easy to follow especially with how beautiful the descriptive the book is The author was able to write about Pagan, Witchcraft and Wicca well The main character, Claire, showed how worried she was about her new born child and the weird dreams she had about something dark taking her child away I felt that the book was well written in overall aspects be it the storyline, character development and even the setting itself However, I felt that the book was long winded The story line was too long which could drain readers from reading it It felt repetitive at times and I could not understand the par...

    Muddled and irritating in partsI did like the start of this book but then it just became unbelievable in places I know it s meant to be whimsical with supernatural aspects but two issues spoiled it for me One was that Claire as a new mother would stay anywhere her child was in danger, real or imaginary, was preposterous The fact she kept sauntering off to the pond where the whateveritwas lived on numerous occasions was ridiculous as was the falling in love with the soldier I won t spoil it for others but it was pretty obvious who he was and what was happening...

    Totally enthralled by this novel A isolated young mother with a baby trying to fit into unfamiliar village life during World War 2 whilst her husband is away fighting, and slowly uncovers an enchanted world Trying to process a whole parade of impressions that seem rooted in a past age that she can not understand, desperately trying to determine which figures real and unreal can help her and which may possibly harm her and the baby Seems to veer from involvement to detachment in what she is experiencing ...

    This is the best Elizabeth Harris I ve read so far It s a little different from the others, in that it is set during WWII and references the traditions and rituals of the Druids.Clare, whose husband Will is away at war, has to protect her newborn son from the sinister influences of the evil in the lake Along with the chaos of war and few friends with little ...

    Haunting but fascinating.Once started I found Claire s story difficult to put down The eternal battle between good and evil, and the earth magic of the druids keeping the balance over the centuries.
