Join BOMC2 for a great deal on THE THIRTEENTH TALE
If you’re among the millions who loved the haunting classic Rebecca, you’re going to be mesmerized by our newest International Book of the Month, a spellbinding tale through which runs the pleading, chilling refrain: “Tell me the truth….”
It was from growing up roaming the stacks of her beloved father’s bookshop that lovely Margaret Lea developed her powerful devotion to literature and writing. Still, she is taken aback when she is summoned to the estate of aging author Vida Winter—a woman whose name is legend, yet of whom little is known—to pen her biography. You see, Margaret is well aware the reclusive Miss Winter, renowned for her storytelling prowess, is notorious for regaling those who dare to ask about her history with fantastic reminiscences, none of which has proven to be real. But Margaret makes it clear she will not be manipulated; she will settle for nothing less than the truth, however shocking it may be….
Remarkably, this haunting novel is Diane Setterfield’s debut, yet it is written with the sure hand of a seasoned writer adept at luring you in. For as Margaret delves into Vida Winter’s past—to her seductive mother, her debauched uncle, and the rest of the aristocratic, but doomed Angelfield family—she finds a connection to her own painful secret…and we find a book that holds us captive until the stunning disclosure that is The Thirteenth Tale.
