The Shadow Year
by Hannah Richell
Genre: Women's Fiction
Review: I was engrossed in this book all last weekend, sitting on the porch for hours, reading.
In present day, the story follows Lila, who inherits a house by a remote lake in the Peak District of England and decides to renovate the house to process her grief.
The book also follows a group of friends who, after leaving college, decide to live off the land for a year and squat in the same cottage in the 80s.
I loved the setting descriptions, hint of mystery, and the way the two storylines interacted.
Now I want to read Richell's debut novel:
