From Katherine Webb, the author of the acclaimed international best seller The Legacy, comes a compelling tale of love, deception, and illusion.

A vicar with a passion for nature, the Reverend Albert Canning leads a happy existence with his naive wife, Hester, in their sleepy Berkshire village in the year 1911. But as the English summer dawns, the Cannings' lives are forever changed by two new arrivals: Cat, their new maid, a disaffected, free-spirited young woman sent down from London after entanglements with the law; and Robin Durrant, a leading expert in the occult, enticed by tales of elemental beings in the water meadows nearby.

Quickly finding a place for herself in the underbelly of local society, Cat secretly plots her escape. Meanwhile, Robin, a young man of considerable magnetic charm and beauty, soon becomes an object of fascination and desire. Sweltering in the oppressive summer heat, the peaceful rectory turns into a hotbed of dangerous ambition, forbidden love, and jealousy - a potent mixture of emotions that ultimately leads to murder.

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

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sheila | 2/18/2014

    " 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rachel | 12/30/2013

    " 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 thoroughly enjoyed this one. "

    " First book I read and loved it. I will diffently be reading more of her books. "

    " Very enjoyable - couldn't put it down. "

    " 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 "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Claire | 1/28/2013

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

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 stillme | 1/25/2013

    " 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. "
