FARRAMONDE by Katherine Troy


Email this review


Although it seems that we've crossed these moats before, this one's a respectable contribution to that heavily franchised area of fiction known as the gothic romance. Lisa Delraven, young and just married, is filled with an ""odd and irrational fear"" at her first sight of Farramonde, an old, towered mansion and the site of her husband Marius' childhood. Marius is disturbingly restless and increasingly withdrawn, particularly after the arrival of the ethereal Sidonie, sister of Virginia, his fiancee who had died under mysterious circumstances. People hint in half sentences as Lisa tries to find out the real relationships between Marius, Sidonie and Virginia (along with assorted sub and side plots).... Upper case Melodrama with a certain ladyfingered punch.
