Book 2 – Visions
The year is 1985. It’s been 12 years since Eleanor fled the horrors of London, hiding in a remote country village, a place where she truly believes she is safe until a new era of evil starts to unfold.
The story branches into the lives of 3 different characters. Eleanor reminisces over her turbulent past – but is yet to catch up with James Barton-Wells and his family. Their beautiful historic country house is in need of restoration. But his plight attracts the interest of an evil property developer from London, determined to get his hands on James’ home at any cost.
Jarred by suspicion, Eleanor consults her dearest friend, Charles Bailey; but Charlie has his own story to tell, fearful that Perry Hampton is the one man, who undoubtedly ruined his future – wondering if it was his calculating machinations alone that plunged his family into poverty. Against all odds, these characters are drawn together in a concentrated battle to save Westbourne House, oblivious to a growing force of darkness about to infiltrate their lives. Yet it is not until Eleanor comes face to face with a deadly adversary from her past, that she finally understands the danger that once again, threatens the lives of those she loves.
Many places in Visions are fictitious – such as Westbourne House (based on this example of fine 17th C renaissance architecture) and its formal gardens. Rosebrook however was inspired by the charming English town of Orpington, in Kent.
“Visions” by Helen J. Christmas is the second in her inspired decade-spanning “Same Face, Different Place” series.
The book is a dark but subtle psychological thriller with an authentic setting in the British 1980s…. | click here to see the review |
