Black Rabbit Hall by Eve Chase
What secrets does Black Rabbit Hall hold, and will Lorna find out what the secrets of the Alton family are as she explores the Alton's summer home?
Lorna is looking for a place for her wedding and is pulled toward Black Rabbit Hall. She has a feeling that it is somehow connected to her past.
Tragedies were plentiful at Black Rabbit Hall when the Altons lived there. Lauren's fiancé isn't comfortable about having their wedding there, but Lorna insists that there is some connection to her and her family, and she wants to find out and have her wedding there.
We learn about the Alton's family life at Black Rabbit Hall through flashbacks and then move forward to present day.
Toby, Amber, Kitty, and Barney told the story of Black Rabbit Hall....a story with great family dynamics.
Ms. Chase's descriptions are marvelous. You can put yourself into every scene of the story and clearly picture what is happening and carried out. I loved going back in time and seeing what was left behind in the kitchen and other areas of BLACK RABBIT HALL.
The old house definitely is a trove of memories and untold secrets and stories. You can smell the dust, see the family’s comings and goings, hear the water dripping from the leaky roof, and visualize the people who lived there.
BLACK RABBIT HALL was a family saga with hints of foreboding as you turned each page.
BLACK RABBIT HALL had marvelous characters that were loving and endearing and of course there was a villain who ruined it all.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book...an excellent debut. The only disappointment, which really isn't a disappointment, was when Ms. Chase left you hanging and waiting with something "juicy" at the end of a chapter and took you back to the past or from the past to the future. :)
ENJOY when you read....the ending was emotional, and the entire book is addicting!!
Loved the book. 5/5
