      I read nearly all of Victoria Holt s books, but this was by far my favorite I still remember the excitement of the mystery and love story I just recently ordered my own copy to read it again Her books have clean romance they are a simplified version of the types of stories Jane Austin writes They often have a lower class girl governess who falls in love with someone out of her league There is often a mystery of murder or kidnapping to go along with it They are set in castles or on the moor s wit [...]

      I read this for Gothic square On the Night of the Seventh Moon by Victoria Holt.So I just realized after finishing this book that I really can t write a very in depth review, because if I do I ll be spoiling the entire book So I m going to try to keep this to just general things and then you can make a decision if you want to read this for Halloween book bingo.On the night of the seventh moon is told from the first person point of view of a young girl named Helena Helena is raised in a loving ho [...]

      Sometimes, looking back, I ask myself Why did you accept this and that Why did you not inquire closely into these strange things that happened to you I was wondering that myself Long story short Helena Trant is attending school in Bavaria and the local villagers have this old festival every year on the night of the seventh moon Lots of drinking and partying and creepy mists in the forest, and our poor heroine gets herself lost and then found by an ever so handsome mystery man IIRC, she s sent h [...]

    4. Sarah on said:

      Aww yeah, 1970s Victoria Holt This was the sort of thing I read with abandon in my impressionable late middle early high school years, and is probably to blame for my deep lingering affection for anything gothic tinged This book has some issues repetition of certain phrases and themes, and characters who are too stupid to live, mainly but if you cut it some slack, it s thoroughly enjoyable.

    5. Addy on said:

      This is not usually a book I would pick up but I remember a friend of mine giving it to me to read but I had never finished it I had fond memories of it, so when I found it at the goodwill, practically in pieces too, I gave it a shot and couldn t be glad that I did Though this book is quite old, it delivers a slamming story I would say this is romance with lots of mystery as I couldn t figure out what was going on until it was practically laid out for me at the end I so enjoyed this book and pl [...]

      I picked up an old copy of this book for 0.25 the other day when I dropped off some items at my local donation centre The pages were yellowed and the writing small but the topic intrigued me It s been many years since I last read Victoria Holt, an author known as the supreme writer of the gothic romance.Mystery, suspense, mystical forests, dark foreboding castles, trickery and folklore legends together with interesting characters made this book a very good read.The story is told from Helena Tran [...]

    7. Jaimey on said:

      I first read this book probably fifteen years ago It has been my favorite Victoria Holt book ever since and yes, I have read all 32 books she penned under that name To tell anything about this would be to give too much away so I ll just say this The romance was breathtaking the action was, in a way, believable and the intrigue was shocking For those of you who need a basic description, here s what the back of the book says On the Night of the Seventh Moon, according to ancient Black Forest legen [...]

    9. Jacqueline on said:

      This was a reread for me for bookclub I originally read this as a teenager back in the 1970s It was just as readable this second time through I didn t remember much of the plot even though I remembered vaguely that the book ended happily I did feel the angst at the horrible things that were happening to Helena I probably figured out what was going on earlier this time since I ve read so many books since I first read this but it was all new the first time through and as a teenager I wasn t quite [...]

    10. Wei Cho on said:

      Gothic romance for the win XD Dunno, when I read this book, way back when six years to be precise anyway I was thrilled by the time period most of Victoria Holt s books took place in Beautiful dresses and parties, eerie castle settings, English landscapes, etc, etc, etc.I don t remember this book a whole lot I just remember a story, a legend, a mystery, a love, and poor character development especially on the hero, Maximillian, side I also remember I was terrified for Helena s fate because she w [...]

    11. Kathryn on said:

      Bottom line this is a fun hairdryer book Don t expect too much of it, and you ll be pleased.On the Night of the Seventh Moon tells the tale of Helena Trant, the daughter of an English man and a German woman, who grows up in Oxford in the late 1800s, listening to her mother s tales of the dark German forest where she was educated When Helena is fourteen, she, too, is sent to be educated at the same seminary on the edge of the forest.At the age of eighteen, Helena has lost her mother and is approa [...]

    12. Anne on said:

      I probably read this book back in the seventies That is, the first time I loved this book so much I bought my own copy and have read it several times It is a timeless, beautiful romance, with suspense added for an extra emjoyment Clean and wonderful I highly recommend it.

    13. Kelly on said:

      I ended up liking this a surprising amount Not even really as a romance the hero is gone from it so long, and isn t all that vivid More as a development of the heroine, who suffers a lot, insists on believing her truth, and finally ends up happy And the setting is beautiful It all felt way meaty than The Time of the Hunter s Moon, which I read a few weeks ago, as if Holt had started phoning it in by the time she wrote the latter.

    14. Angie on said:

      I read these as a teenager and own a lot of them They are mostly gothic mystery romances The mystery still catches me up, but the romance is a little dramatic That is the difference between being a young girl and a 30 something mom Nothing explicit, but definitely some dramatic love at first sight romance It s kind of funny to re read things you read as a teen.

    15. Shivani on said:

      Black forest has always fascinated me The story seemed to be evolving somewhere there and there was no way I wasn t buying this book Reminded me of my school days when reading historical romance was the only thi g to do Glib story, with romance and drama but happy ending

      I have read this book several times It is one of my all time favorites

    18. Joy on said:

      I had never read a Victoria Holt book, and since there are so many, I chose the one that seemed to receive the best reviews It was a quick summer read, but certainly not the page turner others described I found several editing errors too which also served to distract The characters were weak and ill defined Those who were key were subject to the same foreshadowing inferences several times over Her chosen settings were ripe for rich description, but again, Holt failed to hit the mark, only adequa [...]

    19. Kat Dawson on said:

      It s been ages since I devoured a Victoria Holt book Probably late teens, early 20s This book was just as I remembered her stories A great easy read for those times when you don t want anything too challenging but has a bit of substance I m a sucker for a bit of historical fiction romantic or otherwise I enjoyed this read The characters were engaging although I didn t like Frau Grauben very much and the setting was interesting Great for a rainy day, or those nights when you re really tired but j [...]

    20. Absurd Book Nerd on said:

      It has been a VERY long time since I ve read any Victoria Holt books, but I remember that I loved getting them from the library and this one was no exception She has a formula that works for a quick light read and I have yet to be disappointed by it Don t expect to have your mind blown or challenged, but great read for by the pool or on the beach.

    21. Diana on said:

      This is my favorite book of all time I first read this book in high school for a class and have read it several times since It is an old fashioned gothic romance that has a wonderful ending I love Victoria Holt as an author and believe this book is by far her best It includes some romance, some mystery, some sadness, some happiness .

    22. Kina on said:

      I LOVE this book When I started reading it, I really didn t like where I thought it was going, but I ended up LOVING where it actually went You just have to have a little faith and keep plugging along and in the end its a really fun love story I can t wait to read it again

    23. Jeannie Lee on said:

      Interesting book If you want to feel like you are losing your mind as bad as the poor heroine thinks she is, I highly recommend this book It will transport you to another world, filled with superstition and magic, lies and half truths, suspense and intrigue.

    24. Anita on said:

      Actual Rating 2.5 StarsI m giving this book a very mid ranged rating, because while it had a frustratingly over dramatic romance, a frustratingly one tracked heroine, and a frustratingly exasperating set of characters well, the book was addictively engrossing.I couldn t keep myself from wondering about what had happened to Helena, or what would happen to Helena even while the entire ordeal was completely predictable.I disliked a lot of the characters, and I disliked how blas Frau Graber treated [...]

      Like other reviewers here, I read this book many year agoover and over again I remembered it recently and hunted for it in the Used Paperback Bookstore I use But, alas, there were NO Victoria Holt books to be found So I purchased a kindle copy.This is a book that will appeal to any lover of historic romantic mysteries It has no sex scenes so can be shared with a daughter, granddaughter or teenage acquaintance.The book description and the sample available to be read for free on or sent to your ki [...]

    26. Lizzi Crystal on said:

      This book can be looked at two ways, as a hundred pages too long and annoying because every scene, feeling, and situation gets repeated at least three times, or, as for a reader who likes to savor the experience and step fully into the world of the novel I was in between those two ideas the last fourth lost me in too much repetition and waiting around for the heroine to realize what the reader already knew It s not a happy novel, centering largely around adultery and women who kill themselves be [...]

      This novel is old school gothic romance at its best I started reading Victoria Holt books in my teens I got away from them for many years and was thrilled to find this in my tbr The writing is as good as I remember and the book passes the test of time The setting is beautiful the Black Forest area of Germany and the time period is 1860s The characters are intriguing as is the mystery of what really happened to Helena Trant and her Maximilian during the three days they were together and immediate [...]
