Evergreen Falls is another of Kimberley Freeman's dual storyline novels, with the other part of the story set in 1926. Young Sydney woman Violet has gone to work at the hotel and is one of the few staff members left there over the winter months. A massive snow storm that traps staff and guests alike proves to be a life changing event for all who experience it. Once Lauren starts reading the old letters she is firmly ensnared in the mystery and goes to great lengths to uncover the whole story.
As always Freeman's writing is beautiful, with smooth flowing prose and an easy to read style. As usual the mystery got me in early on and kept me in a state of suspense until the end. This is Freeman's real gift, as a dual story can break down pretty easily if there is not even pacing and intrigue from both sides.
I loved Evergreen Falls and I'm sure any other Kimberley Freeman fans will too. The style is very similar to Kate Morton, so fans of hers would no doubt enjoy this as well.
