Blog Tour: A Half Forgotten Song

• Paperback: 496 pages
• Publisher: William Morrow Paperbacks; Original edition (May 28, 2013)

A spellbinding tale about the power of love, the danger of obsession, and the unfaithful nature of memory, A Half Forgotten Song is by turns haunting, joyous, and heartbreaking
1937. In a windswept village on the Dorset coast, fourteen-year-old Mitzy Hatcher has endured a wild and lonely upbringing. But the arrival of renowned artist Charles Aubrey, along with his exotic mistress and their two daughters, changes everything. Over the course of three summers, Mitzy develops a deep and abiding bond with the Aubrey household, gradually becoming Charles’s muse. Slowly, she begins to perceive a future she had never thought possible—and a powerful love is kindled in her. A love that will grow as she does: from innocence to obsession; from childish infatuation to something far more dangerous.
Years later, a young man in an art gallery happens upon a hastily drawn portrait and is intrigued by its curious intensity. The questions he asks lead him to the seaside village—and to the truth about those fevered summers of long ago.

Katherine Webb grew up in rural Hampshire, England. She has lived in London and Venice, and she currently resides in Berkshire, England. Having worked as a waitress, au pair, personal assistant, potter, bookbinder, library assistant, and housekeeper at a manor house, she now writes full-time.

 My Thoughts:

This book had me up a few late late nights! It's so hard to pinpoint the specific genre but it's simply a delicious book! It's one of those books that you start to read and you look up and it's 3 hours later and you hardly noticed! It's that good! 

The stories are woven in such a delicate yet sturdy way, that the threads start to mix and mingle in such a pattern that when you are done, you are left with a highly satisfying and unforgettable tale of loss, love, and a deep obsession!

I loved it and will look for more of Katherine Webb's books! This one will stay with you for a while!
