“What if you recalled memories from a life that wasn’t yours, from a life before …?
When Becky steps into Jonathon Nelson’s atmospheric photography studio in Whitby, she is simply a freelance journalist in search of a story. But as soon as she puts on the beautiful Victorian dress and poses for a photograph, she becomes somebody quite different …
From that moment on, Becky is overcome with visions and flashbacks from a life that isn’t her own – some disturbing and filled with fear.
As she and Jon begin to unravel the tragic mystery behind her strange experiences, the natural affinity they have for each other continues to grow and leads them to question … have they met somewhere before? Perhaps not just in this life but in another? ”
Some veil did fall is a wonderful time-slip novel, that is impossible to put down. It is a dual era novel, that blends the Victorian with modern times. Becky, tries on a dress that starts her reincarnation adventure. Helped by her friend Lissy and Jon, they unravel the mystery, with the clues Ella left behind in a writing slope.
At its heart, there is a tender romance between Becky and Jon, although they have known each other since childhood, it isn’t until Becky experiences Ella- that she begins to see Jon in a new light.
Often witty, heart warming and bittersweet, Some veil did fall is a powerfully emotive drama, that is vivid and beautifully written.
I loved the Victorian and pre Raphaelite brotherhood elements and I have very high expectations for the rest of the series.
Perfect for Barbara Erskine fans or any one who enjoys a delightful, insightive novel that will melt your heart. Just brilliant!
