    One thought on “The Hours Before”

    1. It’s no secret that one of my favourite books is Robert Stephen Parry’s The Arrow Chest. It was the first of his books I read and although I really enjoyed Virgin and the Crab and Wildish, the nineteenth century setting of The Arrow Chest won me over for obvious reasons. Imagine then how thrilled I was to learn that Mr Parry’s new novel was set in the Belle Époque. The Hours Before opens with Deborah Peters returning to her hotel to find her usual maid has been replaced by a mysterious yo [...]

    2. Not my usual period, or style, but a real cliffhanger of a novel that kept me reading the book, until it was finished in two sessions. A gripping read.

    3. Set during the Belle Époque era, The Hours Before is the story of Deborah Peters, a once-celebrated clairvoyant turned dejected society matron, who is bent on revenge and readying herself for a final assignation with her adversary. Readers take a backward look at the events leading up to the protagonist’s current wretched state, and uncover the step-by-step truth of her daughter’s mysterious disappearance and possible demise.Penelope Peters, an English twenty-something student studying in E [...]

    4. The Hours Before is a mysterious and exciting novel by Robert Stephen Parry. Set in the Belle Epoque, I was hooked from the first page. Late one night, Deborah Peters enters her hotel room to find her maid is gone and another woman is in her place. Deborah is already on a path of revenge, yet along with this unusual replacement in her room, the reader travels along a backward path to discover just who Deborah is and the dramatic course her life has followed.Robert Parry captures the elegance and [...]

    5. I was expecting great things from this book and was not disappointed. It is set in the Belle Epoque, and tells the story of Deborah Peters, 'The English Lady', and her search for her daughter who had apparently died in a fire orchestrated by a religious cult. Deborah is convinced that her daughter Poppy is still alive and devotes herself to finding out where she is. Deborah is assisted in her search for Poppy by a magician called Manny Grace, and together they travel around Europe searching for [...]

    6. Another great read by one of my favorite writers, Robert Parry. This book keeps you on the edge of your seat from beginning to end. It is the story of a woman's desperate search for her daughter. Her daughter was reported to be dead among other dead members of an occultist group. The members' charred remains was discovered among the rubble of the building they were living in. Deborah Peters is the mother of Penelope, "Poppy" Peters Deborah Peters is the ex wife of Hugh Peters, a newspaper tycoon [...]

    7. Robert is a gifted writer. The amount of detail that is put into his books is unbelievable. The text flows nicely and it's easy to understand. There are times though that I catch myself skimming through for dialogue because there is so much to read. This book in particular was a very long, exhaustive read for me. I did however enjoy the atmosphere and time period of it. It was well researched and the characters were likable. My heart was breaking for Deborah as she searched for her daughter. I a [...]

    8. Loved this book! Always a big fan of the Belle Epoch and it really put me there by the descriptions. I could tell he did excellent research. I'll be reading more of his work. Thank you for the opportunity of winning and reading this enjoyable book.

    9. So here we are. This was not an easy read. It was an interesting one, but not an easy one. It's told partially as a flashback and partially in the 3rd person present tense (I think/hope I have that right).This is a complicated tale that, IMHO, is done in a "noir" type style. It's dark, and weird, and funny and a little bit surprising. My favorite Stephen Parry is and probably always will be The Virgin and the Crab, but he is such a fine writer and historian that these forays into other eras are [...]
