“When I count, there are only you and I together”
She was a slight woman, pale, with two wings of dark hair which framed her face and gave it the faintly bird-like quality that characterised her person. Even at this distance of time, which has clarified much that was obscure to me, I find her essence hard to capture. She was youthful in appearance but there was also an air of something ambiguous about her which was both intriguing and daunting.
As usual, if you click on the Amazon link, you will be able to see a full synopsis of this book, should you wish to do so.
This book is taken from my TBR pile and was a charity shop find.
They say that the first lines of a piece of writing, are always the most difficult to set down on paper. It seems to me, that they may also be the most definitive, as I find they often set the scene in my mind, even before I have turned the first page.
I think that a box of tissues to hand, is going to be a must, for what sems to be a pretty emotional sounding story, touching on many facets of our increasingly complex everyday lives.
