Very hard to get in to. Not one of her best books at all.

One of my favourite books of hers! She does such an incredible job of weaving so many different characters together through time and she keeps you wanting to read more. Such a talented author.

What a thrill to preview this new novel by Kate Morton. This new novel is ambitious as it spans the mid-19th century to 2017 featuring a house (Birchwood Manor) and an iconic blue diamond pendant (the Radcliffe Blue). The scope of this book was a bit disorienting at times. There were many POV (including a ghost named "Birdie" -- the book's namesake) and some of those folks had dual timelines when they intersected with others affected by the house and/or the diamond. In classic Kate Morton fashion, the threads are woven back together for us tightly enough to feel closure while remaining a bit loose so the reader does not feel manipulated or coerced.

Publishers send out advance reading copies to the press, to reviewers, etc. It is similar to movie critics that get to preview movies ahead of release. That's why you see reviews or ratings before a book is published or a movie is released.

How is there a rating of two stars when the book hasn't even come out yet?
