I'll admit I was disappointed in this novel. From dust jacket: "Catherine and her brother Rob, do not know why they have been adandoned by their parents. In the house of their grandfather, "the man from nowhere", they forge a passionate refuge for themselves against the terror of family secrets, and while the world outside moves to the brink of war, their sibling love becomes fraught with dangers. But as Catherine fights free of the past, the spell of winter that has held her in its graps begins to break. The novel's rich imagery moves beween the stark, harsh winter world that Catherine loves and the summers she loathes, when the air is thick with the scent of roses and painful memories. Through decades of changing season, the two siblings nature withn an enclosed world, surrounded by servants who guard the mysteries of their heritage. First Rob and later Catherin will dare to break through the wall the encircle their perversely stifled lives to move toward heartbreaking but final release. Dunmore's hypnotic, affecting prose is filled with unexpected tenderness and moments of beauty as she expertly evokes a melancholy era with a wholly original keenness. A Spell of Winter recasts the Gothic pastoral novel with breath-taking contemporary insight, exploring the normal complexities of human choice and action."
