New Release: The Arrow Chest by Robert Parry

"London, 1876. The painter Amos Roselli is in love with his life-long friend and model, the beautiful Daphne - and she with him - until one day she is discovered by another man, a powerful and wealthy industrialist. What will happen when Daphne realizes she has sacrificed her happiness to a loveless marriage? What will happen when the artist realizes he has lost his most cherished source of inspiration? And how will they negotiate the ever-increasing frequency of strange and bizarre events that seem to be driving them inexorably towards self-destruction. Here, amid the extravagant Neo-Gothic culture of Victorian England, the iconic poem ‘The Lady of Shalott’ blends with mysterious and ghostly glimpses of Tudor history. Romantic, atmospheric and deeply dark".

  1. I like the combination of Gothic elements and Tudor history.

  2. Me too and I hope I will get some free time to get this one read. I heard his previous novel "Virgin and the Crab" was really good from other blogs too.

  3. The blurbs for this book are intriguing. At hope to be able to get to this one sooner than later.

  4. librarypat, Robert is an amazing author he has a very extensive art history background and this one intrigues me too. I hope to read it someday but it will be one of the ones I buy.
