    One thought on “The Storrington Papers”

    1. I found this to be a depressing book. One of those that leave you feeling unsatisfied and gloomy. I had very little sympathy for Hannah as I believe she brought most of her own troubles on her head. Her desire for revenge had unforeseen consequences. Broken marriages, unfaithful spouses, mentally disturbed children, make this book just too dark for me.

    2. I'm reading this for the time. one of my favorites! somewhat predictable, but good characters and an interesting twist here and there.
