Calling on Margaret Lea, a young biographer troubled by her own painful history, Vida disinters the life she meant to bury for good. Margaret is mesmerized by the author's tale of gothic strangeness—featuring the beautiful and willful Isabelle, the feral twins Adeline and Emmeline, a ghost, a governess, a topiary garden and a devastating fire.

BLEACHERS JOHN GRISHAM PDF

Diane Setterfield's debut novel arrived already wreathed in acclaim, and it's easy to see why. The Thirteenth Tale is a cleverly plotted, beautifully written homage to the classic romantic mystery novel. Rebecca and The Woman in White spring to mind, but especially Jane Eyre: a book that Setterfield weaves into the substance of the plot, and whose Gothic elements are skilfully reimagined in a peculiar tale of madness, murder, incest and dark secrets. Margaret Lea's life is devoted to the antiquarian bookshop run by her father. Scarred by the youthful discovery that she was born with a twin attached to her side, whose removal and death allowed her survival, she lives quietly, reading voraciously and occasionally writing, for pleasure, the biography of some literary also-ran.
