The Thirteenth Tale, by Diane Setterfield

This novel is the perfect combination of heart-strings and eerie. If you are a story-lover, you will love this one in that it glorifies books, authors, and readers. I found the narrator relatable and the woman she interviews titillating.  It reads like a ghost story while maintaining a strict adherence to realism. It's part twin story, part family saga, part ghost story, part mystery, and part metafiction. You won't want to put the book down.

I highly recommend this book.
