This has been a truly magnificent story which has evoked so many different feelings within me some of joy some of anguish at how some people were treated back in the day and a fair bit emotional too The author Emma has woven such a beautiful story which captivates the past and present and moulds them together as one story As a teenager I was never one for history in school found it dull and never held my attention but having read this book of which a fair amount of the story is devoted to past history I have learnt a lot and have thoroughly enjoyed it It's been uite an eye opener this tale has been Upon finishing this story I literally hugged the book with happiness because of how much I enjoyed it and sadness because it meant it was over the story was finishedThis is one book that will stay with me for uite some time Highly recommended for anyone that loves Historical fiction

Omg this book is phenomenally good ❤️With a dual timeline between past and present this book has it all War love betrayal mystery history and hauntingEverything stems from a night none of them will ever forget for their own reasons tearing them all apartThe most memorable and compelling parts of the book for me is the storyline of the two sisters and their lives during the war in Singapore where they detained as prisoners of war and the treatment they received at the hands of the Japanese soldiers Blending fact with fiction it makes for a harrowing read knowing people actually went through that and survived is incredible It is so well written it was playing out in my head as though watch a film and I know that those images will haunt my dreams tonightAnd then there is the great niece Charlotte whose story is set in the present with her own battle scars to deal with Her career as a barrister is just taking her into the big leagues after winning a high profile case her life goes from high to low rapidly Her mum is diagnosed with terminal cancer with not much time left so she drops everything to be with herFrom there she is dealt another curve ball as her mother tells her she has relatives she never knew existed and the feud that ripped them all apart But there are always two sides to a story and not everything is necessarily as it seemsThis is the first book I’ve read of Emma Fraser and I was initially drawn to it as it was recommended for fans of Kate Morton Kate Riordan and Tracey Rees whose books I love and I can safely say she really does belong in the company of those other authors And I now have a new favourite author 😃Greyfriars House is out now in kindle and Hardback and the paperback edition will be published on August 9th 2018
