The House at the End of the Moor

We rated this book:


After being imprisoned for nine months for a crime he didn’t commit, Oliver Ward has escaped Dartmoor Prison. Wounded, desperate, and on the run, he flees into the moors, where he finds Maggie Lee, herself on the run from her past. Alone, they can do nothing but manage to survive, but together they can truly live.

I should say, together and with the help of God, for Christian faith pervades this book, even reaching the antagonists. At its best, it was charming and inspirational, but at times I felt as though I was being constantly reminded of the book’s message.

That sentiment sums up my feelings about the book as a whole. At times, it was a thrilling read, full of twists and turns and narrowly-escaped danger. At others, it was overdone, a historical soap opera with more pathos than plot. Few of the characters were anything but one-dimensional, and when the narration switches to their perspective, I found myself thrown from my previous immersion.

The House at the End of the Moor will certainly suit some readers. If you’re looking for a Christian historical romance that revels in its swift pace and intense plot, it will be exactly what you’re looking for. That it didn’t suit me was as much a matter of my taste as of the book itself.
