Soundtrack Saturday – The Thirteenth Tale
Current Read: The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield
Once Sentence Summary: Novice biographer Margaret Lea is commissioned by the ever-mysterious author Vida Winter to write her true life story.
Soundtrack Song: Chopin’s Nocturne E Minor, Op. 72, #1, performed by Sviatoslav Richter
Why I chose this song: Margaret’s trip to Miss Winter’s house, the journey across the Moors, reminded me of Mary Lennox’s journey at the beginning of the 1987 film adaptation of The Secret Garden. This song brings to life the trepidation and mysteriousness of both those journeys.
