Current Book (November 14th)
November's book is The Thirteenth Tale
by Diane Setterfield.
Margaret Lea, a bookish loner, is summoned to the home of Vida Winter,
England's most popular novelist, and commanded to write her biography.
Miss Winter has been falsifying her life story and her identity for more
than 60 years. Facing imminent death and feeling an unexplainable connection
to Margaret, Miss Winter begins to spin a haunting, suspenseful tale
of an old English estate, a devastating fire, twin girls, a governess,
and a ghost...
The author skillfully keeps the plot moving by unfurling
a new twist in each chapter and leaves
no strand untucked at the surprising and satisfying conclusion. A wholly
original work told in the vein of all the best gothic classics. Lovers of
books about book lovers will be enthralled. - Kaite Mediatore Stover
