The Thirteenth Tale

The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield
I recently listened to this book from the public library, The Thirteenth Tale, read by Bianca Amato and Jill Tanner. The story is wonderfully written and these ladies read it beautifully! I truly enjoy hearing a story with different voices. The women portray the main characters Margaret Lea and Vida Winter. It's a mysterious plot that at times is a little scary. Margaret works in her father's bookshop and has recently written an autobiography that catches the eye of Miss Winter who is looking for a biographer to tell her own story to. Margaret agrees though never expects to discover the interesting events of Miss Winter's life mirror some of her past events as well. It is a gripping story with depth and scope and many many well developed characters. I loved listening to it and was so sad to hear it end. It's a novel that takes a big committment to read and finish. It's long and involved and so satisfying.
