23. THE THIRTEENTH TALE - Diane Setterfield
Oh, to have thought of this concept. A biographer meets with the famous author, Vida Winter, to hear her life story, including that of the unwritten "Thirteenth Tale." However, is Margaret going to believe a woman who has told reporters several different stories of her life?
Rather than be misled, Margaret investigates Vida's past. As she peels back the layers, she realizes that truth can be stranger than fiction.
I'll admit it... I thought it would be overrated. However, I was charmed. Though there are enough coincidences to make one's frown begin to pucker, it is still a fascinating story that engrosses the reader.
