Bone Gap swallows The Lie Tree
The Lie Tree is an intriguing read with intricate themes of family ties, societal expectations, truths and lies interwoven in a Victorian murder mystery. Faith (yes a bit of hit you over the head symbolism from the author) tries to solve the murder of her beloved father. As with many murder mysteries, what you thought you knew may not really be what is - maybe it is all just lies.
Bone Gap has magical elements, mixed with longing, loneliness and a look at what you think you see may not be the reality. This leaves the reader fascinated, sometimes confused and also wondering what will happen next. A quirky book with quirky characters - some will love it and some will hate it.
I have not consulted with my reading partner recently but she encouraged me to blog when I could. So, for me the book to continue on is Bone Gap.
