Becky Albert [Spring 2007]

The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield. It is beautifully written and mysterious enough to keep you turning the pages. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Reminded me of a gothic novel, with dark family secrets, an old haunted house, a “spinster” type who spends all of her time reading old books… Just the ticket for crisp, dark fall nights.

Abide with Me by Elizabeth Strout. I think she has New England small town churches down to a T, and tells a mighty good story of strength, and when it is the right thing to do to admit needing help.
