The Woman in the Green Dress

A cursed opal, a gnarled family tree, and a sinister woman in a green dress emerge in the aftermath of World War I.

After a whirlwind romance, London teashop waitress Fleur Richards can’t wait for her new husband, Hugh, to return from the Great War. But when word of his death arrives on Armistice Day, Fleur learns he has left her a sizable family fortune. Refusing to accept the inheritance, she heads to his beloved home country of Australia in search of the relatives who deserve it more.

In spite of her reluctance, she soon finds herself the sole owner of a remote farm and a dilapidated curio shop full of long-forgotten artifacts, remarkable preserved creatures, and a mystery that began more than sixty-five years ago. With the help of Kip, a repatriated soldier dealing with the sobering aftereffects of war, Fleur finds herself unable to resist pulling on the threads of the past. What she finds is a shocking story surrounding an opal and a woman in a green dress. . . a story that, nevertheless, offers hope and healing for the future.

This romantic mystery from award-winning Australian novelist Tea Cooper will keep readers guessing until the astonishing conclusion.

My Review

I did like this book. The historical fiction aspect and time period is what drew me to this book in the first place. Instantly, I was drawn back in time.

In the beginning, I was really feeling this book. Yet, the further I got into the story, I got confused. There was a lot of different characters introduced into the story not to mention the back and forth time periods. This was not as smooth a transition as I would have liked. Moments were too quick with not a lot of details. Therefore making it hard to really get to know everyone very well. 

Despite these factors; I still did like this book. I would read another one by this author as I do believe Tea Cooper has some good storytelling skills.
