The London House


The London House by Katherine Reay is a split-time novel starting first with letters then with diaries. 

Caroline Payne is seeking the truth about her grandmother and her twin sister. After being approached by Mat Hammond, she travels to the London House looking for the truth about her great aunt before Mat can publish his article. As she pours over the letters and diaries she realizes how similar her life is to her great aunt. 

This book is about a life based on secrets and a lie, and the heartache and darkness it can produce. About the bond between twin sisters and how life and the war changed them. Although there was a great deal of detail, the story is about the complexity of family and the bond of love. I did love how the mystery climaxed in the end.

This historical novel would not be considered Christian fiction, but one that reflected family, forgiveness and hope.

 I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from the publisher. All thoughts and opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
