I will start out by saying: I am a sucker for true-to-form gothic tales of secrets and deception. And The Thirteenth Tale definitely fit the bill.
Her Fearful Symmetry is the second novel written by Niffenegger, and part of me wanted to read it just because of how much I loved The Time Traveler’s Wife when I was younger. I didn’t realize right away that this was a ghost story, but picked it up to read it largely based on the author. So, there you have it, I’m telling you from the outset that this book focuses largely on the aunt’s ghost.
This book was a lot more complicated than that, though.
