Publisher's Summary

Distraught that her academic career has stalled, Alba is walking through her neighbourhood when she finds herself in front of 11 Hope Street. A woman named Peggy invites her to stay, on the house's usual conditions: she has 99 nights to turn her life around. With nothing left to lose, Alba moves in.

But this is no ordinary house.... Past residents have included George Eliot and Beatrix Potter, who have hung around to help newcomers - literally, in talking portraits on the wall! Alba begins a journey that will heal her wounds - and maybe even save her life.

    Any additional comments?

    I really liked the concept of this book, and thought the idea of the talking photographs was brilliant, but I was disappointed that the author didn't make more of this and the historical possibilities, as it seemed that a fair bit of research had gone into it. The book turned out to be a fairly shallow look at the romantic troubles of 3 young women. Actually I would rather have learned more about Peggy, the elderly guardian of the house, who was far more interesting. Unfortunately it didn't really grip me, and even with the magical elements, it was all a little bit too predictable and nice.
