I’ve just found a little snippet on Kate Morton’s website about her third book The Distant Hours, and I’m really excited. I absolutely loved The House At Riverton (The Shifting Fog) and The Forgotten Garden (links to goodreads.com), so have been looking out for her latest book for some time.
In her online Journal, she says
” I can’t tell you too much about the story just yet, except to say that it’s my favourite so far, it takes place in the present and the past, in particular, England during World War Two, and it’s full of secrets (of course!). There was a lot of research to do for this story, the sort done with books at my desk in my little office, and also much more exciting research in Other Places: a climb up the SISSINGHURST tower, guided tours of Blitz-torn London, descent into an abandoned Underground station… I shiver just thinking about it!”
And if that isn’t intriguing enough, there’s a little trailer teaser to view too!
It’s due for release in The UK, USA and Australia in November 2010 (rest of the world in 2011). You can pre-order on Amazon already, though there is no cover or synopsis yet…I’ll update as soon as it’s available!
