Excellent Historical Fiction
The Turn of Midnight by Minette Walters is the follow up to The Last Hours a book I thoroughly enjoyed.
The Turn of Midnight picks up the story where the previous book had finished in 1348 with Dorsetshire still recovering from the Black Death.
The story again shows how Lady Anne and Thaddus Thurkell think and act differently from other leaders and allow the people of Develish to grow as individuals.
The writing is once again excellent and the story both thought provoking and compelling as Lady Anne and Thaddus face numerous obstacles and challenges.
If you haven't read the prequel then you will be stil be able to fully enjoy The Turn of Midnight as there is a short background to the main characters at the beginning along with sufficient backstory within the actual book.
Again this book is thoroughly recommended.
