?Donde esta la verdad? La historia mas importante de su vida era la que nunca habia escrito. Entre mentiras, recuerdos e imaginacion se teje la vida de la senora Winter, una famosa novelista ya muy entrada en anos que pide ayuda a Margaret, una mujer joven y amante de los libros, para contar por fin la historia de su misterioso pasado. Cuenteme la verdad , pide Margaret, pero la verdad duele, y solo el dia en que Vida Winter muera sabremos que secretos encerraba El cuento numero trece, una historia que nadie se habia atrevido a escribir. Despues de cinco anos de intenso trabajo, Diane Setterfield ha logrado el aplauso de los lectores y el respeto de los criticos con una primera novela que pronto se convertira en un clasico. El cuento numero trece es un esplendido homenaje a la mejor literatura del siglo XIX, de La mujer de blanco a Rebecca, y muy especialmente Jane Eyre: todos los elementos de la novela gotica y de misterio estan ahi, y Setterfield ha sabido combinarlos con maestria. - The Independent El cuento numero trece es un libro que nos devuelve el amor por la lectura. - The Spectator ENGLISH DESCRIPTION Instant #1 New York Times bestseller Readers will feel the magnetic pull of this paean to words, books and the magical power of story. –People Eerie and fascinating. –USA TODAY Sometimes, when you open the door to the past, what you confront is your destiny. Reclusive author Vida Winter, famous for her collection of twelve enchanting stories, has spent the past six decades penning a series of alternate lives for herself. Now old and ailing, she is ready to reveal the truth about her extraordinary existence and the violent and tragic past she has kept secret for so long. Calling on Margaret Lea, a young biographer troubled by her own painful history, Vida disinters the life she meant to bury for good. Margaret is mesmerized by the author’s tale of gothic strangeness–featuring the beautiful and willful Isabelle, the feral twins Adeline and Emmeline, a ghost, a governess, a topiary garden and a devastating fire. Together, Margaret and Vida confront the ghosts that have haunted them while becoming, finally, transformed by the truth themselves.
