Cecily Chadwick is idling away the long, hot summer of 1911 when a mysterious countess moves into the large, deserted country house on the edge of her sleepy English village. Rumors abound about the countess’s many husbands and lovers, her opulent wealth, and the tragedies that have marked her life. As Cecily gets to know her, she becomes fascinated by the remarkable woman—riveted by her tales of life on the Continent, and of the famous people she once knew. But the countess is clearly troubled by her memories, and by ruinous secrets that haunt her…
 
Staying with the countess is a successful novelist and dear friend who has been summoned to write the countess’s memoirs. For aspiring writer Cecily, the novelist’s presence only adds to the intrigue of the house. But it is the countess’s grandson, Jack, who draws Cecily further into the tangled web of the countess's past, and sweeps her into an uncertain future…

    The Memory of Lost Senses is an entirely enjoyable, page-turning

    The Memory of Lost Senses is an entirely enjoyable, page-turning read. If you love mystery romances set in another era and locale (in this case early 1900s in the English countryside and also Italy and France), then you’ll adore this. Author Judith Kinghorn doles out tons of mystery—exactly what were the circumstances surrounding the Contessa as a child, and what happened to her great love affair, which leads us to ask: exactly who is related to whom; is her writer friend Sylvia, who plans to write the Contessa's memoir, really her friend; and, finally, what will happen to the innocent and budding romance between the Contessa’s handsome grandson and one of the clever village girls? You’ll discover the answers to these questions, and much more, but pay close attention, because there are countless twists and turns, as many as in a typical footpath that winds through Rome!

    So so

    I wasn't really impressed with this book. Nothing prompted me to read others by this author. It was actually a little tiring to read to the end.

    It took me half way through this book to keep interest in it and in the end I thought it was a disappointment.
