Thank you Mira for providing the above summary of THE SILENT FOUNTAIN. I must write up-front, I’ve never read a Victoria Fox novel before and I now know she’s quite the bestseller in England making her way over the pond for the first time with this novel. I’ve also never read a Gothic historical romance before and I can fully appreciate its popularity. I also can tell by reading the novel, Fox’s craft of writing and plot planning is brilliant, but this genre just isn’t my cup of tea.
I believe many of Thoughts on This ‘n That followers know of Victoria Fox and will absolutely but THE SILENT FOUNTAIN.
