All in all, The Shrouded Walls delivered just what I expected from it; a nice, short break in-between other books

The Shrouded Walls is just standard Victorian Gothic fare, nothing really original: young heroine virtually alone in the world; rich, mysterious older man who sweeps her off her feet and into a hurried marriage; a huge, old family mansion; murder and tense undercurrents among her husband's numerous family members. There is nothing wrong with The Shrouded Walls, it is just a very stereotypical Gothic. All in all, The Shrouded Walls delivered just what I expected from it; a nice, short break in-between other books. Yes, the plot strains credulity, but who expects realism from a Gothic?

Comments:

I love Mercedes
This book is a series of five gothic mystery novellas by Susan Howatch. The first one was entertaining, the second felt like I'd read it before and by the time I read the third one I knew that it would involve an innocent young woman, somehow married to an enigmatic older man who she suspects of committing murder. Unfortunately, she's trapped in an isolated home with a group of strangers for the weekend as she both falls in love with her new husband and finds clues to convince herself he's a murderer. All ends well, but the stories follow this very predictable pattern... different women, different husbands and locals, but the same story.
