Secrets of Nanreath Hall
Secrets of Nanreath Hall: A Novel | Alix Rickloff
This incredible debut historical novel—in the tradition of Beatriz Williams and Jennifer Robson—tells the fascinating story of a young mother who flees her home on the rocky cliffs of Cornwall and the daughter who finds her way back, seeking answers. Cornwall, 1940. Back in England after the harrowing evacuation at Dunkirk, WWII Red Cross nurse Anna Trenowyth is shocked to learn her adoptive parents Graham and Prue Handley have been killed in an air raid. She desperately needs their advice as she’s been assigned to the military hospital that has set up camp inside her biological mother’s childhood home—Nanreath Hall. Anna was just six-years-old when her mother, Lady Katherine Trenowyth, died. All she has left are vague memories that tease her with clues she can’t unravel. Anna’s assignment to Nanreath Hall could be the chance for her to finally become acquainted with the family she’s never known—and to unbury the truth and secrets surrounding her past. Cornwall, 1913. In the luxury of pre-WWI England, Lady Katherine Trenowyth is expected to do nothing more than make a smart marriage and have a respectable life. When Simon Halliday, a bohemian painter, enters her world, Katherine begins to question the future that was so carefully laid out for her. Her choices begin to lead her away from the stability of her home and family toward a wild existence of life, art, and love. But as everything begins to fall apart, Katherine finds herself destitute and alone. As Anna is drawn into her newfound family’s lives and their tangled loyalties, she discovers herself at the center of old heartbreaks and unbearable tragedies, leaving her to decide if the secrets of the past are too dangerous to unearth…and if the family she’s discovered is one she can keep.

A little behind, but real life got in the way... I enjoyed this #nanreathread. A tale of mother and daughter told in separate times one during WWI and the other during WWII. I enjoyed Anna‘s story more than Kitty‘s, but both were told well.

Thanks for hosting @Librarybelle and @CouronneDhiver

Also fits #newtoyouauthor for #booked2019

Nanreath Hall has its share of secrets. With a dual timeline, Rickloff looks at the inhabitants during the 1st and 2nd World Wars. A little long in parts, but the hint of mystery and the writing style kept me going. Overall, I liked this. It‘s a historical fiction that‘s a quick read.

Another successful #buddyread , @CouronneDhiver ! Thanks to everyone who joined us for #NanreathNovel . It‘s so much fun to read with fellow Littens!

Tamra I agree it is, even though I didn‘t finish this one. 2w

My first #BuddyRead completed and enjoyed. I admit I read ahead a bit, but since I annoyed all of my classmates doing that throughout school, I guess it‘s just par for the course. While not my typical read, I enjoyed this character-driven family drama, and the similarities and differences between the two historical eras (the two World Wars). Which character did you feel most sympathy toward, buddies? #NanreathNovel @Librarybelle @CouronneDhiver

An enjoyable dual timeline historical fiction novel... compelling and well paced with an especially strong first half.

Also:

✔️ Romance bits not too graphic
✔️ Best character: the suspicious and prickly Lady Boxley

✖️ Wanted more on Kitty‘s timeline
✖️ Writing not memorable

⭐️⭐️⭐️💫

#NanreathNovel

Tamra I love prickly characters! 3w
BibliOphelia I agree with all of this! I won‘t go out of my way to find more by this author, but it was a nice moderately paced diversion. I‘m a sucker for books set in other times and places. 3w

Finished this one last night. I liked it, but I felt like something was missing. I enjoyed the dual storylines/timelines. I think the book just wasn't long enough for the author to go deep with the different characters. Still a pick, though. Thanks for hosting the #NanreathNovel #BuddyRead @CouronneDhiver @Librarybelle !

Sorry fellow #NanreathNovel buddy readers, I couldn‘t help myself. I had to finish 🤷🏻‍♀️ I really enjoyed this dual time narrative set at the start of WWI and during WWII. I love books about family secrets, and this one, although totally predictable, didn‘t disappoint! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Finished this last night! It was really good and an interesting story following a mother and daughter.

Oh and I saw this sign this morning. Haha.

I‘m almost done! I took a much needed break and got a massage this afternoon. I also tried Cupping and the therapist showed me how it worked on my arm, which is where the funny mark came from.

And shortly I‘m heading off to see the Mr. Rogers documentary. A good end to the day.
