Description

This classic Gothic romance, hailed by the Boston Globe as a gem of its species, tells the spine-tingling story of a young woman caught up in an English manor’s shadowed, violent past-and confronted by the very real dangers that lie within. Fanny Davenport has lived at Darkwater ever since she was brought there as a young orphan.

IMO, Voice of the Dolls has been incorrectly lumped into the genre that Eden most commonly wrote. I like the old fashioned style of writing. Dorothy Eden created a set of very sharply drawn characters. Romantic suspense, maybe - but all romantic suspense is NOT gothic. Auto-labeling romantic suspense as gothic is like saying all dystopian novels are post-apocalyptic. The vulnerable wife, the stoic governess, a stilted child, the binge eating mother in law together with the hero and the charismatic psychopath. My main objection is that the book is too short and events happen too quickly.

Voice of the Dolls (Coronet Books). The characters are very interesting. There were a lot of plot twists and turns. This was the first Dorothy Eden book I've read and it was very enjoyable. Recently Viewed and Featured IO I. . Select Format: Hardcover.

A Biography of Dorothy Eden. Chapter 1. THE SOMBER SWEDISH COUNTRYSIDE tipped beneath the wings of the plane, endless spruce forests lighted at intervals by autumn-tinted birches, outcrops of rocks like bare bones, small dark-red houses that looked as if they had been dropped haphazardly into the forest. It was too late to read Willa’s letter again. In any case Grace almost knew it by heart
