As a fan of historical novels (e.g., The Winthrop Woman) that provide believable heroines it's difficult to believe that I had not read this one. The suspense, the quality of writing and knowing that this book was written so very long ago all blended together to provide a book that was difficult to put down. The narrators of this particular recording contributed to it's pleasure by instilling a sense of listening in on the past that was thoroughly enjoyable!
This book was so well written that, after finishing the first read I started all over to listen again so that I could hear it from a different perspective! I had thought of doing this with other books, but then gave up early on as it didn't feel like there was any mystery left to discover. Not so with The Thirteenth Tale. It was as difficult to put down the second time as it was the first.
