My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I was lured into the pages of this fascinating novel during the first chapter. I love falling in love with a book from the first page.
Idlewild Hall 1950 – a young student disappears from an all-girl boarding school. The case is dismissed and the missing girl is assumed to be a runaway. But where a fifteen years old, relative less refugee from Frances would go?
Idlewild Hall 1994 – a body of a young girl is found on the old field of an abandoned boarding school. Her boyfriend is found guilty and sent to jail.
Idlewild Hall 2014 – a rumor flies across town that boarding school now has new owners who wish to restore it… but the body found in an old veil prevents the construction to go much further.
People in town, along with a journalist Fiona Sheridan are questioning the restoration of an old school. As a true journalist, Fiona intents to uncover the real reason behind Idlewild Hall reconstruction… but the fathers she “digs” – Fiona uncovers secrets that were meant to never see the light of the day.
There are two storylines in the book that cross path at the end. I will be honest, it was not the ending I expected to find, and I enjoyed the story very much. I definitely recommend it to any mystery lovers.
