The Distant Hours by Kate Morton

The Distant Hours by Kate Morton

A letter is lost, and found, and delivered fifty years after it was posted.  The delivery of that letter changes the lives of two families causing events of the past and present to collide in fortunate and disastrous ways.

Kate Morton has a very gothic style, rich with descriptions.  A dark tone envelops her characters, yet shafts of light do break through the mists.  While not all is grim, there is a melancholy resting over the elderly sisters moldering away with their castle in the English countryside.
Time, the fluidity of it, and the nature of the relationships between mothers, daughters and sisters are the heart of this intriguing novel.
