“Occult happenings, romantic passion, and murder disrupt the peace of a Berkshire village in 1911 in this hauntingly good novel.”

Marie Claire (UK)

Katherine Webb’s debut novel, The Legacy, was an international bestseller—and her remarkable second effort, The Unseen, is as gripping, thrilling, and unforgettable as her first. In this compelling story of love, deception, obsession, and illusion, the arrival of two dangerous strangers in a small village in England in the early 1900s disrupts the quiet lives of a vicar with a fascination with spiritualism and his naïve young wife, and ultimately leads to murder. The Unseen is literary suspense at its most entertaining and enthralling, truly superior fiction not unlike the captivating tales of Kate Morton and Diane Setterfield.

    " So enjoyed this! It's rare that an author so successfully tells a modern & a historical story simultaneously. "

    " I really liked the historical details in this book, and it involved one of my favorite topics--turn-of-the-century spiritualism. Specifically, I found the passages about suffragettes interesting. (view spoiler)[I'd heard about force feeding before, but I never really thought about exactly what that entailed or how invasive, painful, and barbaric it must have felt. (hide spoiler)] "

    " This is a very interesting story set in an English village in 1911. The plot meanders through a maze of complications that ensnare a young couple, Hester and Albert Canning; Cat Morley, their housemaid; and Robin Durrant, a charlatan who preys upon the susceptible Albert, vicar of the local parish. An interesting parallel to Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children... "

    " This book was slow to start but created a wonderful atmoshpere. Towards the middle the pace really picked up. A satisfying read. "

    " Not at all what I expected for an ending - it today surprised me! I thought it was great from the beginning, and I flew through the last 100 pages. "

    " I thought this was a fanastic read but why oh why do we devour the books we love.......The Unseen is very reminiscent of Kate Mortens books, which is a plus "

    " Such a bittersweet ending. Good pace and easy to read. Would definately recommend. "

    " Webb does a great job of introducing a plot point, and then keeping up the suspense until the reveal. The 1911 storyline was a lot stronger than the 2011 one, but I still couldn't put this one down until it was finished. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katherine | 6/1/2012

    " A pretty good read, although some parts seemed slow to me.. the "mystery" part kept me intrigued. I also seemed to pick up other books to read before I could finally finish this one. "
