Publisher's Summary

A brooding contemporary gothic love story, beautifully told with rich and sensual imagery. When Eve falls for the secretive, charming Dom, their whirlwind relationship leads them to purchase Les Genevriers, an abandoned house in a rural hamlet in the south of France. As the beautiful Provence summer turns to autumn, Eve finds it impossible to ignore the mysteries that haunt both her lover and the run-down old house, in particular the mysterious disappearance of his beautiful first wife, Rachel.
Whilst Eve tries to untangle the secrets surrounding Rachel's last recorded days, Les Genevriers itself seems to come alive. As strange events begin to occur with frightening regularity, Eve's voice becomes intertwined with that of Benedicte Lincel, a girl who lived in the house decades before. As the tangled skeins of the house's history begin to unravel, the tension grows between Dom and Eve. In a page-turning race, Eve must fight to discover the fates of both Benedicte and Rachel, before Les Genevriers' dark history has a chance to repeat itself.

A nice gripping storyline throughout.

What did you like most about The Lantern?

Learning about Dom's character. How dark was he?

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Lantern?

The eloquent and beautiful description of Provence.

Would you be willing to try another one of Anna Bentinck and Jilly Bond ’s performances?

Maybe by Bentinck. As my Audible journey has progressed, I've realised that I have a preference for listening to male narrators.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I now more than ever want to experience every aspect of France.

Good beginning and end, confusing middle

A great start to the book, and a good ending, however I became confused in the middle. Two stories intertwine, and I found this difficult to follow on audio. The chapters numbers may tell you which story you are on, but I missed any help that gave. However I'm glad I persevered through to the end. The narration was clear however I didn't notice there were two narrators until I had finished listening to it. If you can keep the two stories apart, possibly worth a rating of 5!
