Book Review: The Distant Hours by Kate Morton

The Distant HoursThe Distant Hours by Kate Morton

My rating: 1 of 5 stars

I don’t like giving books a bad review. I know there is a lot of work, effort, and part of a writer put into every piece. I really wanted to love this book and when I finally got it, I couldn’t wait to tear into it. That is where the love of this book ended.

I loved the The Forgotten Garden and with it I fell in love with Kate Morton. This book had the feel that it would be like the Forgotten Garden and weave in and out of historical fiction and romance. However that story was apparently left only for the book jacket because the whole of the book is so boring and the characters are flat. I felt like banging my head against the table every time I tried to read this book. I am very disappointed with the lack of suspense or even character depth.

I just couldn’t force myself to finish it. I had to let it go.
