I found this book very hard to read the flow of the story has me re-reading many parts just to understand what was going on. This has only ever happened with one other book by Victoria Pinder and I have read many of her books before. I had to keep reading to see what the mystery of the chateau and Gabriel, but at times I almost gave up. This book must be a very early work of this author as her writing style is a lot different and better of late. I really questioned the likelihood of this story happening and the recitations of the characters. I must say the last 20% of the book was the best to follow and read.
