The bit on the back...
Beneath the surface lies a terrible secret…
Across the decades, Vivien and Lucy find themselves trapped in the idyllic Italian villa.
And if they are ever to truly escape its walls, they must first unearth its secrets…
I'm delighted today to be taking part in the blog tour for Victoria Fox' new novel The Silent Fountain. I've been a fan of
Victoria's over the last
few years so I'm always excited to read something new from her.
BEWARE: This book will have you hooked!
The story is written with a dual narrative between Vivien and Lucy, two women far apart in years but with something intertwining their lives together. Readers are also treated to a time flip element to Vivien's story which lets you come to fully understand her character and back story.
From the start there is just something, hard to pin down exactly the feeling, but something that feels like suspense and excitement with an edge of fear and real tangibility. After reading the first fifteen or so chapters of the book I still couldn't get a sense of where the story was heading!
One thing that really struck me about the book, alongside the story, was the vivid detail and imagery employed throughout. I've been to
Italy and can
recall acutely the dusty, fragrant heat of the day and the cool clarity of the
night time. The novel was like a step back to that holiday with a feeling that
all senses were been tantalised throughout. Even the cover had my interest
This is sure to be one of the books you see at every poolside this Summer with heads of romance and suspense fans alike stuck inside! I am excited to see what's next!
