Welsh language event
Rhyl Library reading group met on the 2nd November to discuss Black Rabbit Hall by Eve Chase. Here are some of the comments from the readers:
“A very good start about older family, a bit confusing in the middle, but on the whole quite good”.
“A good read; a real story with a happy ending. Perfect for holidays, long train journeys, etc. The characters were interesting enough to make readers care about them”.
“A most unusual and absorbing family story”.
“Unfortunately I did not finish this book. Could have been shorter, though I do feel Eve Chase shows promise as an author”.
“An easy gentle book with a happy ending. A good story with many past and present strands that are woven together well”.

Black Rabbit Hall
At Black Rabbit Hall nothing much ever happens – time seems to move slower at this idyllic holiday home in Cornwall. Until the worst thing happens and for the Alton children time feels like it’s stopped altogether. As they run wild, lost in grief and confusion, an outsider, Caroline Shawcross, and her dark, angry son Lucian enter their lives, changing them forever. In the present day, Lorna Smith is searching for her perfect wedding venue and is inexplicably drawn to the now crumbling Black Rabbit Hall, unaware that her own history is locked up in those derelict walls
