    I rather liked this book You could characterise it as historical fiction but there’s a bit to it than thatBased loosely on the Ian Reid’s own family’s history it’s the story of the enigmatic Rev William Hammond who might – or might not – be a charlatan a rogue and a murderer The tale begins with the bereft relations of his third wife Francis and their suspicion that her death and those of her children were due to foul play Marooned in remote 19th century New Zealand Edward Phillips seeks to find out the truth about his sister’s death but as the correspondence shows is hampered by his distance from events far away To read the rest of my review please visit
