The Thirteenth Tale

The Thirteenth Tale - Diane Setterfield A must read for fiction book lovers, especially those with a Gothic / Victorian interest. I first listened to this as an audio book a few years ago when I did a lot of driving and enjoyed it so much I purchased a copy to read. Reading it went very quickly, I didn't want to put it down. The language is lovely and I though I knew the basics of the plot, I found it still held some twists I had forgotten.
