    This book frustrated me immensely First off, the good, I liked the story of Nell She was a strong character, but a horrendously sad and tragic story, certainly doesn t leave you with a warm glow Secondly, the character of Tess frustrated me I didn t really feel comfortable with the regression business, but she frustrated me anyway She needed a bloody good shake and to be told to sort hers...

    I was so engrossed in this book I couldn t put it down until I had finished The morphing between time zones was very well done At first I sarcastically thought great this is just an adult Tom s Midnight Garden, but then they started changing at different times of day and it just got so much better and quite unique I would have given it 5 stars however two of the characters in particular almost ruined the book entirely The relationship between the main character and her mum was disgusting to I was so engrossed in this book I couldn t put it down until I had finished The morphing between time zones was very well done At first I sarcastically thought great this is just an adult Tom s Midnight Garden, but then they started changing at different times of day and it just got so much better and quite unique I would have given it 5 stars how...

    Quick, easy read The chapter divisions seemed a bit random to me, and Martin s character at the end was a bitwell, the whole way through we kept hearing he had shady contacts, but it was never explained why or how

    After buying The Memory of Midnight in Whitby Bookshop last week I did worry if this book would live up to the excellence of Patricia s previous novel Time s Echo I need not have What a fantastic book I read it over 2 days and have already passed it on looking forward to the next one.

    This was the second book I ve read from Ms Hartshorne, and while I appreciate that she used her scholarly research and her love of York to spice up her time slip novels, I find this one is seriously repetitive and predictable Plucky heroine going through a lot in the modern era, check Similarly plucky heroine going through even worse trauma in the Tudor period, check Heroine has a child and either an absent husband or an abusive one, check Heroine terribly worried about going MAD and being This was the second book I ve read from Ms Hartshorne, and while I appreciate that she used her scholarly research and her love of York to spice up her time slip novels, I find this one is seriously repetitive and predictable Plucky heroine going through a lot in the modern era, check Similarly plucky heroine going through even worse trauma in the Tudor period, check Heroine has a child and either an absent husband or an abusive one, check Heroine terribly worried about going MAD and bein...
