Publisher's Summary

Thirty years have passed since Greta Marchmont left the Marchmont Hall. Now she finally returns, with amnesia and no memory of her past.
But a walk through the wintry landscape leads to a disturbing discovery: she comes across a grave in the forest, and the weathered inscription on the cross tells her that her own son is buried here. Greta begins to search for the woman she once was, and to do so she must summon all of her courage....

Surprisingly Good!

Hesitated in purchasing this book because there were so few reviews, but so glad I took the chance. Although the story was not real suspenseful, it was both in depth and had great character development. Also, narration was incredible! J.B. did an excellent job of bringing the characters to life. I actually grew to care for them, and wanted to find out what happened to each of them. Story was definitely long, but the time still passed quickly. Try it out, and do not think you will be disappointed with the purchase.

Characters elicited no sympathy

What disappointed you about The Angel Tree?

The main character was so unsympathetic. She was a weak woman who couldn't see beyond her own warped view. I could not understand why the male character found her so attractive. She was insipid both as a young and old woman. I haven't slogged through the last five hours so perhaps she will redeem herself. The supporting characters were engaging.


What could Lucinda Riley have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

She should have done some research. At the time period, the studio system in Hollywood, as well as morality clauses we're thing of the past. I also don't believe a schizophrenic can go fifteen years without a psychotic episode.


What three words best describe Julia Barrieā€™s performance?

Not too bad. Overall was OK but American male characters were not very good.


What character would you cut from The Angel Tree?

I hate to say it but the main one, Greta.


Any additional comments?

I have enjoyed several books by this author so I was surprised that this one was so slapdash.
