I write historical mysteries that I like to call Vintage Mysteries, since they're set in the nineteen-thirties, forties and fifties.They're stories of love, marriage, families and friendship, where the loyalties, feuds, secrets and betrayals of the past cast long shadows into the present.I'm fascinated by characters who are quirky, mysterious, funny, unexpected and interesting and I want readers to share, as I do, in their joys and sorrows.With dramatic and glamorous settings from icy lakes to Italian villas, from wintry Budapest to fashionable France, from Cornwall to the Lake District, the landscapes are as powerful as the stories are complex.The tense realities of life mingle with supernatural elements : ghosts, prophetic dreams and voices from the past, but fun and humour also dance in and out of the light and darkness of the stories.My aim is to enthrall, delight and amuse readers as they are transported to a different era.A review posted by a reader said my books take you out of the daily world and make the impossible seem possible--that's just what I want them to do.My novels have been translated into several languages and published in many different countries.I was born in Chile, have lived in India and Italy and now live in Oxford, where I went to university--and where I've taken up bell-ringing.I also write as Elizabeth Aston; please visit my other author page and have a look at those books.

Not sure how I feel about this one so far. I picked it up at the library and when I leafed through it, it looked OK, but now I'm reading it, it's a bit dull. I'm hoping that once all the preamble is out of the way, things will pick up a little bit, but I'm almost tempted to give up on it. 27/11 -...
