Book Review: The Distant Hours by Kate Morton

I don't like giving bad book reviews which is why I'm really picky about what I read. If I think I won't like it, I will stay away. This book intrigued me the first time I heard about it and I wanted to read it. I began it when my book club was featuring it and didn't get that far into it. I picked it back up a few weeks ago and got about half way through. This book has fabulous writing. The story is good also, with a solid hook that made me want to read it to the end. However, about half way through, I realized that it was taking me so long to get through it that I wasn't enjoying it anymore. It is just paced slowly, which is perhaps simply a Gothic novel thing? Anyway, I decided to just stop even though I really wanted to see how this one ended. It was just too slow for me. This book is for those who love a good Gothic novel and love to get lost in a story for an extended period of time. It wasn't for me, but I did enjoy the writing, particularly the focus on emotions and the detailed descriptions. I've read one of Ms. Morton's other books, "The Forgotten Garden," and liked it much better.
