    One thought on “The Black Swan”

    1. Good story, but it didn’t excite me. I needed something more special or different about the characters.Lucie was bland, passive, trusting, naive. Her friend said Lucie had a mind like a lawyer. But lawyers are smarter about analyzing things and people, not trusting as easily as Lucie did. Her lawyer-like-ness was speaking calmly with reason.If you look at an outline of the plot with events, twists, and the roles of characters, it’s very good. But the filling in of words for 300 pages was plo [...]

    2. I think this was very interesting. I picked out because I was in a mood for romance but, its not so romancey. Its different from anything I would usual read, but it puts me in a thoughtful mood. But it did kept my interest and I will forever be paranoid of black swans. ^_^

    3. I enjoyed this undemanding book about good and bad characters in the 1700's in England. Although it did seem to go on a bit, I was never tempted to skip to the end to get it over with. I really got into the sedate main character and her opposite in every way, the secondary character. I didn't see the ending coming and it was a surprise, although I knew something was up with the brother and sister team, but I just didn't know what.

    4. i love to read and reread victoria holt and philippa carr books(the same author but sea writes as victoria holt gothic romance and historical gothic romance as philippa carr of that the first story is set in the time of henry the 8 and the last is second world war)this one is set in the 19 century and is one i read now twice and liked it even better the second timectria holt is my tea and chocolates.

    5. Re-read it for the nth time - love this series. This book has an especially frightening twist - even knowing it is coming. Great Gothic atmosphere and even though you can kind of guess that there's something odd about the siblings . . . until the very end, you just don't know what it is. Another well done book in the Daughters of England series.

    6. If you like clean, cheesy, romance novels then you will like anything by Victoria Holt or her pseudonyms.

    7. Perhaps I have read too many of Carr's books, but I was able to guess whodunit by the middle of the book. Still, it was a fun read, and enjoyable.

    8. I don't care what it is, or what penname she writes under, I love anything by Victoria Holt aka Phillipa Carr.

    9. I enjoyed this one - no spoilers - but the plot twist had me very surprised at the end. Now on to the next in the series.

    10. Wonderful as Always! Phillipa Carr Is Victoria Holt!Like the books before it, this continues the saga of girls growing up in England, and the history they live.
