Elizabeth Fremantle recommends

The Misbegotten (2013)
Katherine Webb
"Katherine Webb's writing is beautiful and THE MISBEGOTTEN reads like a journey through the dark hidden world beneath a Jane Austen novel."

Black Rabbit Hall (2015)
Eve Chase
"Black Rabbit Hall is a seductive wonder of a novel; with echoes of Daphne du Maurier and Dodie Smith, it pulls you irresistibly into its world where nothing is quite as it first appears."
thumb
The Last Hours (2017)
(Last Hours, book 1)
Minette Walters
"A vividly-wrought and powerful story. With The Last Hours, Minette Walters has brought her impressive skill as a writer of psychological crime to create a dark and gripping depiction of Medieval England in the jaws of the Black Death."
thumb
The Illumination of Ursula Flight (2018)
Anna-Marie Crowhurst
"Witty, engaging and very clever, The Illumination of Ursula Flight is absolutely my kind of novel."
thumb
The Story Keeper (2018)
Anna Mazzola
"I read The Story Keeper in a single sitting and am very glad it is still light because I have rarely encountered such a creepy and unsettling story. With echoes of The Wicker Man, the remote and desolate setting adds to the sense of threat but also gives it a timeless quality, like the folkloric stories it evokes."
thumb
Before I Find You (2018)
Ali Knight
"Like The Girl on the Train, brilliantly twisty and compulsive."
thumb
The Glass Woman (2019)
Caroline Lea
"remendous. Atmospheric and beautifully wrought, The Glass Woman is both chilling and beguiling."
thumb
The Doll Factory (2019)
Elizabeth Macneal
"A remarkably assured and beautifully written debut, filled with sinister delights and intriguing themes of imprisonment and objectification. A truly captivating read."
thumb
The Museum of Broken Promises (2019)
Elizabeth Buchan
"Buchan has a gift for understanding the complexity and ambiguity of human emotions."
thumb
The Words I Never Wrote (2020)
Jane Thynne
"The Words I Never Wrote threads its way through layers of twentieth-century history, weaving a pattern of love, loss, hope, and tragedy against a backdrop of conflict. Two sisters separated both ideologically and geographically are brought together once more when a half-finished manuscript describing their lives surfaces more than half a century later, allowing their stories to be unpicked and re-sewn together in a deeply moving narrative. Highlighting the power of the written word to bear witness to the seismic shifts of history, this is complex material beautifully stitched. I couldn’t recommend it more highly."
