I have never been a great fan of mysteries. I find that I know who did it very quickly and that ruins it for me. And this book was no different. By page fifty I knew who did it and how. By the last chapter, I didn’t. How could this happen? Kate Morton weaves a tail so well over many generations of the same family that I could not figure out who did it (until almost the end.) When Alice is in her teens her baby brother is kidnaped and presumed dead. Many of her family had reason to be guilty, but Alice is a writer and wrote a kidnap plot in her book. Did someone follow it? I thought so, maybe you should just read this book yourself and see if you do any better than I did.
