Talk about a book sneaking up on you.
I bought a beautiful edition from the The Strand in NYC maybe 5 years ago? I had never read it. I tried reading Lighthouse Bay and it could not hold my attention, so I randomly picked this book up, cuz I was so frustrated with my lack of ability to focus. I have been reading it every since. I am loving this book!
I love the mystery of what is up with Helen, though I have a hunch. Also, I must say I enjoyed the aunt’s advice to Helen in Chapter 16. Though I don’t agree with everything the aunt has done so far, I felt her advice to Helen about choosing a husband was timeless. I wonder how 20 year old me would have responded to that passage, 40+ year old me was like PREACH!
Have to get back to it…
