Black Rabbit Hall by Eve Chase

Reviewed by Katy Zignego (Library Staff)

Black Rabbit Hall is a vaguely gothic family story, set in a big old house in the English countryside, jumping between two time periods a la Kate Morton. In fact, the whole book is a rip-off of The Lake House, Kate Morton’s newest offering. That isn’t to say that Black Rabbit Hall isn’t enjoyable for fans of Morton (and Mary Stewart before her), but it certainly isn’t one of the genre’s best examples. The characters are not very likable–especially the modern couple, who are downright annoying–and you can see the twist, such as it is, coming a mile away. Take it along if you are going up north for a weekend and want to read something moody and atmospheric, but easy to put down when it’s time to go out skiing.
