(4.7 stars; 47 reviews)

A novel written in three volumes. In the golden age of steam, the London train wends its way across the Tamar into the strange and mystic land that is Cornwall, having left most of its length at Plymouth. A weary doctor gazes at the countryside, when the train grinds to a halt and his professional attention is demanded. A young woman. An apparent suicide. Who was she? What brought her to Cornwall? What drove her to kill herself? Or did she? - Summary by Lynne Thompson (17 hr 19 min)

Reviews

(4.5 stars)

A very good mystery! There are 3 storylines & you go back and forth between them. You shouldn't get confused by this. It makes things more interesting. There aren't so many characters that you can't keep up either. My only gripe is that a couple of chapters before the last one tend to go into detail about a lady & I just didn't care. I felt I already knew enough about her at that point.

Great Story

(5 stars)

One of my favorites by Braddon. A mystery, a love story, action and intrigue, all on one book. A very clever story, and plenty of details so that you really feel like you get to know these characters. MEB was really a fantastic author in her time, with intriguing stories and clever characters.

(3 stars)

Pretty good book. Unfortunately there were times I couldn’t understand the reader-once in a while it sounded like she was speaking into a tin can or something. Made me loose interest.

(5 stars)

Very enjoyable book. From the 5th chapter I couldn't put it down. Love the narrator as well.
