I highly recommend immersing yourself in THORNYHOLD’s gentle magic. There is truly a meandering magic at work in this book that never fails to draw me in every time I pick it up. That's right, it's one of those books I re-read from time to time. Why? Simply because I want to 'go there' again. Mary Stewart wrote romances that managed to be full of action, adventure and danger, while never sacrificing the heart of the story, which was all about love. When I read her romantic suspense novels, I find myself truly liking her heroines without reservation. Her characters are real to me, which shows her incredible skill as a writer. This is especially true of THORNYHOLD. In THORNYHOLD we initially find ourselves involved in the inner life of a girl who is experiencing a difficult childhood. She is lonely, and sent to boarding school at an early age, which doesn’t work out well. I have the feeling that the boarding school scenes are autobiographical in nature, as Stewart herself has admitted to being unhappy in boarding school. Perhaps her affinity for what her character goes through is what makes these scenes so affecting. Fortunately, our heroine has a godmother who brings a little magic into her life at just those times when she needs it most. These early scenes set up the real story of THORNYHOLD, which is, of course, all about love. After her godmother’s death, our heroine, now an adult, moves into her house in a remote part of the English countryside where magic abounds. There is a local coven, a nosy neighbor, a motherless boy, a handsome neighbor, messages seemingly from ‘the beyond’, and other mysterious goings-on she must deal with. That’s where the true magic in this novel is to be found-- in accompanying our heroine as she navigates her way through this maze until she reaches the center, where true love is to be found.

I enjoyed this novel as much as Nine Coaches Waiting. Suspenseful and engrossing read. I recommend this to any mystery/goth readers.
