    Some years ago, I read Elizabeth Harris s first book, The Herb Gatherers and I loved it I don t know why I didn t read any until now when I picked up this one This is a well constructed novel and I love Ms Harris s prose she gives us an idyllic view of wartime Sussex in the small village of Firlebury where Clare and husband Will move to shortly after their wedding They have a beautiful cottage on the edge of the village very close to the pond where, for some reason, Clare finds unsettling each time she passes it It is not long before Will is sent off to war and Clare finds herself pregnant Life is hard as she knows few people and with rationing she has to make do They appear to be a friendly bunch who are happy to help including the enigmatic Lily Carpenter, an elderly lady who offers Clare the use of a lovely cradle for the soon to be born Michael He arrives a few day s early on the eve of 31 October 1 November which is Samhain in the Celtic calendar With Will soon to be missing in action Clare s battling supernatural forces to keep Michael safe from the Grey Lady of the pond who demands a sacrifice for Samhain I read this quickly and enjoyed it although I didn t feel the force as much as I would have liked and I was a little irritated by Clare s mumblings to herself which seemed a tad immature But overall I m glad Elizabeth Harris hasn t lost the magic and I will be going back to catch up on some of her earlier works.Thanks to Netgalley for an ARC of this book

    The Twilight Child offers up a delicious prospect a vintage, WWII setting with a time slip element and than a whiff of the supernatural Just my cup of tea And how lovely, how rare, it is when something not only lives up to expectation, but exceeds it.Newlyweds Clare and Will have settled in the idyllic, ancient Sussex village of Firlebury Replete with village green and friendly locals, life in their tumbledown cottage is perfect, serene Their happiness is made complete when Clare discovers she is pregnant But threats to their bliss loom on the horizon Will is called to serve his country, and as the dark pall of war hangs over the countryside an even darker, unspeakably ancient force threatens the safety and lives of both Clare and newborn Michael, left alone to fight the violence engulfing them Alone, that is, until a mysterious stranger becomes their protector Elizabeth Harris is evidently a fan of Thomas Hardy not only is the Wessex bard oft quoted, his spirit is invoked throughout in the verdant, bosky settings, superstitious and beautifully drawn locals and the exquisite rendering of times past There s even a character named Gabriel, who, like his Hardyan namesake, averts disaster from a lone female protagonist Hardy is my favourite author, so these allusions delicately woven through Harris s tale are welcome In The Twilight Child, however, those superstitious elements are carried through to a far darker conclusion than anything residents of Hardy s Wessex might have dreamed of The time out of mind terror which stalks Clare and Michael is a Wicker Man nightmare arcane ritual and unthinkable evil are vividly evoked Harris s writing is just beautiful she blends lyrical, hypnotic prose with sheer terror as she skilfully and insidiously ramps up the tension The privations of wartime England are heartbreakingly drawn, as are the losses suffered by so many, however small or remote the parish the horror which engulfs the defenceless Clare feels like an allegory for the horror and helplessness of war The Twilight Child is pleasingly multi layered there is something for everyone here, whether your taste be for historical novels, thrillers or haunting, supernatural tales The period detail is to die for and the prose shimmers, lending the tale richly textured depth and an almost hallucinogenic quality I absolutely devoured it and read late, late into the night albeit with the lights on hurtling toward the unforgettable denouement which still haunts Unmissable.My thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for the ARC in exchange for an honest review

    I received this book from NetGalley for an honest feedback The theme of the book was dark and intriguing which excites me even I love the style of writing here The book was well written and the style of writing was easy to follow It was easy to follow especially with how beautiful the descriptive the book is The author was able to write about Pagan, Witchcraft and Wicca well The main character, Claire, showed how worried she was about her new born child and the weird dreams she had about something dark taking her child away I felt that the book was well written in overall aspects be it the storyline, character development and even the setting itself However, I felt that the book was long winded The story line was too long which could drain readers from reading it It felt repetitive at times and I could not understand the part in which she had a crush on the guy who helped her That part was a little not well explained on how he was able to be there when he was already dead But otherwise, I just have an issue with the length and the repetitiveness of the book Overall, I found the book to be a great read As stated above, the book was indeed well done in all aspects The development from one stage to another was great and it went above my expectations.

    The Twilight Child is the story of Claire, a World War Two bride, whose husband has gone off to fight and left her in their new home in Firlebury, a little village in Sussex to await his return Claire is pregnant with her first child and seeks to settle down in the village, but soon she starts to have visions of the past and the terror of ritualistic happenings Claire s son is born and is immediately given the protection of a cradle from a mysterious villager, Lily Claire spends a lot of her time questioning what is happening around her and worrying for her husband Will, who has been reported missing in action This is an enjoyable book as the reader goes on a journey with Claire, trying to fathom where the unseen forces are coming from and protecting her baby son, Michael.Having previously read one of the author s other works I was keen to read this and haven t been disappointed This is definitely worth reading if you enjoy the time period with the added bonus of a mystical twist.Thanks to Endeavour Press and NetGalley for the advance reader copy.

    Muddled and irritating in partsI did like the start of this book but then it just became unbelievable in places I know it s meant to be whimsical with supernatural aspects but two issues spoiled it for me One was that Claire as a new mother would stay anywhere her child was in danger, real or imaginary, was preposterous The fact she kept sauntering off to the pond where the whateveritwas lived on numerous occasions was ridiculous as was the falling in love with the soldier I won t spoil it for others but it was pretty obvious who he was and what was happening The letter from her husband and then the long drawn out reunion, leaving the child in the village with the woman who s daughter she knew was in service to the whateveritwas, was too much and at that point I gave up on Claire in despair and had a strong urge to ring social services.I gave it two stars because the author used some lovely prose and is obviously talented, it was the clunky story that wasn t for me.

    Totally enthralled by this novel A isolated young mother with a baby trying to fit into unfamiliar village life during World War 2 whilst her husband is away fighting, and slowly uncovers an enchanted world Trying to process a whole parade of impressions that seem rooted in a past age that she can not understand, desperately trying to determine which figures real and unreal can help her and which may possibly harm her and the baby Seems to veer from involvement to detachment in what she is experiencing There are shades of The Wicker Man , Fraser s Golden Bough and whilst familiar Pagan type archetypes emerge, never felt that the story got predictable It was almost like the whole impact of the War is pressing the lead character into a different reality Bleak and disturbing but benign influences materialise First novel that I d ready by Elizabeth Harris and look forward to reading .

    This is the best Elizabeth Harris I ve read so far It s a little different from the others, in that it is set during WWII and references the traditions and rituals of the Druids.Clare, whose husband Will is away at war, has to protect her newborn son from the sinister influences of the evil in the lake Along with the chaos of war and few friends with little support.I read this in October coincidentally, and it was genuinely spine tingling in places I also felt genuinely sad about Gabriel.A great read, especially during the dark winter evenings.

    Superb book to keep you readingI have read some others by Elizabeth Harris, including the quiet earth so I was looking forward to reading this book Clara and will moved to a small village then the war and will is sent overseas Clare is pregnant, and in time gives birth to michael No spoilers but michael is in serious danger, not just because of the war Read this book, it is definitely worth it and thoroughly deserves my 5 rating.

    Haunting but fascinating.Once started I found Claire s story difficult to put down The eternal battle between good and evil, and the earth magic of the druids keeping the balance over the centuries.
