Black Rabbit Hall is the debut novel by Eve Chase.  If you are looking for an atmospheric read with beautiful writing and family secrets, this is the book for you.                                      

The story is centred around an old crumbling estate house in the British countryside and is told from the alternating points of view of two characters from different era’s. It is the old crumbling house that mysteriously connects the two characters.

I enjoyed Black Rabbit Hall for it’s beautiful writing and character development.  The author manages to bring Black Rabbit Hall to life and I loved the haunted, gothic vibe she conveyed so effectively throughout.

I did, however, find my attention waning towards the middle of the novel due to the slow pacing.  As a result, I failed to become fully drawn in to the story.  That said, I was pleasantly surprised by the twist as well as the ending.  I felt this redeemed the book and I was glad I stuck with it.

If you like historical fiction that is atmospheric and vividly depicted, I would not hesitate to recommend Black Rabbit Hall.

Many thanks to for the wonderful opportunity to read and review this debut novel by Eve Chase.

    Hi Nicola! Yes, I like the new design. It’s nice and clean. This book sounds interesting, though I tend to spend all my reading time in the nonfiction category these days. Maybe it would be better for a quick audiobook.

      Iv been reading a lot of non-fiction too these day since going plant based. Iv been doing lots of research.

      But Im sure that will calm down and I will have more time for fiction soon. Would you believe I have never listened to an audio book !!! Would you recommend them? Thanks for stopping by Andrea xx
