Rosemary McLoughlin ½ 9 Summary

Tyringham Park Free download  E-book, or Kindle E-pub Rosemary McLoughlin elegantly captures period glamour and darkness in Tyringham Park a brilliant and epic tale of love and lossIt is 1917 and Charlotte Blackshaw is only eight years old when her little sister Victoria vanishes from the magnificent country estate of Tyringham Park The feverish search for Victoria soon uncovers jealousies and deceits that the inhabitants of the grand house have fought. Tyringham Park is the story of a rich family who is deeply affected when when of their daughters disappears Charlotte the daughter who is left behind is constantly reminded of what happened to her young sister Victoria She feels guilty because she is still there when her sister is gone but there may be than meets the eye there It took me a bit to get into this book This book has been compared to Downton Abbey but it is uite different Yes there is a little bit of the tension between the upstairs and downstairs like Downton but it really just focuses on Charlotte s story whereas Downton focuses on everyone in the household Charlotte s family owns a huge estate but while Downton almost feels like a character in Downton Abbey but Charlotte s family s houses Charlotte does have an interesting story that unfolded slowly but ends with a surpriseThe synopsis really does not begin to tell the whole story Victoria s disappearance is the very beginning of this story I really felt bad for Charlotte She takes on so much as a child from the adults that are supposed to care for her Her mother and her nanny are pretty abusive which was uite uncomfortable to read I wish that the story had focused a little on her young life I also wish that we got to understand why she did what she did I don t want to give anything away about the mystery at the center of this book The storytelling in the book was ok I felt that there were some places that could be slimmed down a little bitI did like the setting of the book The book takes place both in Ireland and Australia two places that I love reading about I really enjoyed the armchair traveling that you get in this book
