Centred on an old country house, this tale has a haunting feel to it and one which the author ties to the 2nd World war and a generation betrayed. And then there is Raymond's prose which at times is almost poetic.
At times however, Raymond gets a little too carried away with himself, his prose becomes a little too florid and he almost goes off on an unnecessary and ineffective philosophical tangent. However all in all this is a good read and I enjoyed it immensely.
