The hand of fate…

The Ballad of Lotto and Mathilde

I ordered Fates and Furies by Lauren Groff as part of a recent reading stash purchase (mentioned here) but delayed beginning it until now.  I wish I HAD started the book sooner because it quickly became one of my favorite reads of the summer.  I stayed up way too late over the past week, following this slyly nuanced tale of a ‘perfect’ marriage that gives truth to the old adage that there are always three sides to any story; his, hers, and the truth.  If you are looking to get lost in a tale of passionate love, heart-rending loss, sacrifices made, revenges exacted, lies made truth and truths not told than this is the story for you.  Have you read Fates and Furies?  I’d love to know what  you thought of the story and what is on your ‘must read’ list for fall…
