Bettina Scott is a proper young woman. She would never go against her mother’s wishes. But when she receives a note from her missing brothers, she starts to question everything she thought she knew. With the help of some friends, she begins to dig into her past and attempts to find out what really happened to her father and her two brothers. She’ll have to work quickly before all the answers begin to fly away.
I’m not entirely sure what to make of this book. Even after reading it, I couldn’t confidently tell you what happened. The author’s writing style felt heavy on description and weak on storytelling. It was disjointed and sometimes felt very random. It left me with more questions than answers. I did enjoy the folktales, but even with those, it was a bit hard to understand what was actually occurring. The book is very short, and I think the author could have used a few more pages to develop the story and characters. Bettina is obviously the main character, but even so, I don’t know much more about her than when I started. I don’t know that I would recommend this if you like fairy tales and folktales. If you enjoy unclear Gothic stories, then you will probably love this.
