It centres on the early eccentric life of Miss Havisham, before we meet her as the time-stopped, jilted bride in Dickens’s Great Expectations.Based on the original ending of Dickens’s novel, The Mould of Time may be an engrossing chronicle set between the 1780s and 1880s, but is also a human drama featuring elements that span time.Robin Dermond Horspool has moulded a powerful and compelling novel of suspense and intrigue which, along with a tantalizing Editor’s Note and absorbing Prologue and Postscript, will instantly engage the reader’s imagination and remain beyond the last page.
