July’s Book Club column features three great books now in paperback, including Kate Morton’s The Distant Hours. It’s a WWII mystery that spans five decades, and our reviewer described it as “old-fashioned tale” that “tips [its] hat to previous novels that feature great English houses with something to hide, such as Rebecca, The Secret Garden and Jane Eyre.” Morton’s characters are so convincing, you may find yourself Googling the lives of people who did not exist (like I did).
The trailer from Macmillan is a little bit haunting and a whole lot of creative. Made me want to bust out the scissors.
The Distant Hours comes out in paperback tomorrow. Who will be picking it up?
