And thinner, clearer, farther going!
O sweet and far from cliff and scar. The horns of Elfland faintly blowing!
Blow, let us hear the purple glens replying:. They faint on hill or field or river:. And grow for ever and for ever.

Then she starts seeing things. That's problematic on many levels. Once you find out what the treasure is I think you may roll your eyes. View 1 comment. I do like her stuff that takes place in Scotland a bit more, but this was still delightful. The entire story revolves around her leisurely stay in an old hotel and her wandering around the small tourist town of Chinon. Originally posted on my blog.

The setting of the Hotel de France brings Emily into contact with interesting characters, some of whom help her in solving the mysteries, others who hinder, and one, Neil Grantham, who stands as rival to Armand for her affections. There is an American couple staying at the Hotel as well, Garland and Jim Whitaker; Garland, bitchy and unpleasant; and Jim, long-suffering and silent.
Though one does not immediately warm to him, he does have his charms and is a formidable rival to Armand of the impatient hands and slick lines. Emily confronts ghosts and shadows, in dream states and waking. Miss Bates wishes that Emily took her own past into greater consideration in choosing life and love by the end, but maybe finding justice for the dead, or an understanding of it, helped her work through her personal ghosts.
Kearsley does some of the finest of her writing in illustrating these themes.
But then I blinked and there was only Paul. Though they were trapped in shadows, while I had open sky above me, I felt somehow that it was me, not them, shut in behind the iron bars; that their eyes saw a wider world than mine. Miss Bate was driven to read it to find out what happened, but yearned to know how Emily and Armand?
Though the message of the novel is that love and mercy are more important than justice, justice is still what drives the narrative, what determines the content. What are your thoughts? Which of her books do you consider your favourites? Share your thoughts with Miss Bates in the comments.
