The Looking-Glass Portrait - Linda Hilton

A few things to share!


At this point, I'm planning on filling the ghost square with this one, and it has become very ghostly, indeed. The writing is, as I would expect from Linda, excellent and atmospheric. I wasn't so sure about the heroine's name - Thomasina - when I picked up the book, but it's grown on me, and I love the nickname "Tamsin," that she's been given by the person whom I anticipate will be the Hero!


And, I've read enough of Linda's writing that I recognize her voice in these words, which is wonderful!
