Overview

Lucio Maria de'Vigentini, Lord of the Red Manor, is loaded with years, money, memories and regrets-the ancient curse cast upon his family weighing heavily on his soul. He lost his son, Rick, at sea and his wife left him, taking Rick's twin, Chris Sandcroft, to Canada. Lucio, lonely and ailing, is tortured by the prophesy predicting the extinction of the Red Manor and its occupants at the turn of the millennium. When Chris asks him to live with him, he accepts, hoping to escape the curse. Despite Chris' loving care, sudden immersion in a different culture and a modern household taxes Lucio's spirit. The unearthing of two precious cups, once Red Manor possessions, brings much excitement to the blue-collar city of Harrisville, Ontario, and with it, crime. Then the malefic prophesy of the Red Manor seems to take its inexorable course, as shadows of the past occur with menacing consistency.

In reading The Red Manor by Rene Natan, I found myself totally captivated by the storyline, the characters, and the creativity of the author. With a book of this caliber, we reviewers tend to say, ¿I just couldn¿t put the book down once I started to read it.¿ Although a cliché, I can honestly say that this is how I felt as I eagerly progressed from chapter to chapter of The Red Manor, anticipating what would follow.

This is an exceptionally well-written book by a very creative author who has researched her material and knows how to keep the eyes of readers riveted to the pages. The storyline reflects realism, the description is outstanding, and the dialog flows naturally. I give it my highest recommendation as a ¿must read.¿
