A beautifully told, captivating novel of 19th-century love and intrigue
Maisie Thomas spends every summer with her parents at Grange House, a hotel on an island off the coast of Maine ruled by the elegant but distant Miss Grange. In 1898, when Maisie turns 17, her visit marks a turning point. On the morning after her arrival, local fishermen make a gruesome discovery: two drowned lovers, found clasped in each other's arms. It's only the first in a series of events that cast a shadow over Maisie's summer. As she considers the attentions of two very different young men, one an adventurous writer, the other an ambitious businessman from her father's company, Maisie also falls under the gaze of Miss Grange, who begins to tell her stories of her past. But which are truth and which are fiction? Another death, a cache of diaries, an exchange of letters - and a ghostly apparition - all play a part in changing Maisie's life forever.
Rich with the details, customs, and language of the era, Sarah Blake's Grange House is part family saga, part ghost story, part love story; a wonderfully atmospheric, pause-resisting novel of literary suspense and romance.

This book did not hold my attention. I am an avid Audible “reader” and found it difficult to get through. Predictable and disappointing conclusion.
Disappointed— way too long
Unsure what her goal was. Very tedious and often uninteresting for long periods. Expected better character development. This was more a sappy soap opera than a good novel.
