The Time Will Come #5


The Time Will Come is a fantastic meme hosted by Books For Company where we can feature those poor books that we brought, put on the shelf, and haven't (yet!) read.

All you have to do is:
- Pick a book you have been meaning to read
- Do a post to tell us about the book
- Link the post in the linky
- Visit the other blogs!



Alias Grace by Margaret Atwood


Published: 1 February 1996


Pages: 636 (paperback)


Grace Marks has been convicted for her involvement in the vicious murders of her employer, Thomas Kinnear, and Nancy Montgomery, his housekeeper and mistress. Some believe Grace is innocent; others think her evil or insane. Now serving a life sentence, Grace claims to have no memory of the murders.

Dr. Simon Jordan, an up-and-coming expert in the burgeoning field of mental illness, is engaged by a group of reformers and spiritualists who seek a pardon for Grace. He listens to her story while bringing her closer and closer to the day she cannot remember. What will he find in attempting to unlock her memories? Is Grace a female fiend? A bloodthirsty femme fatale? Or is she the victim of circumstances?


I own six (yes, six) Margaret Atwood novels and I've never read a single one.  Shocking Kat, shocking!  I've heard so many mixed things that maybe it's subconsciously putting me off....one day Margaret, one day!

Are you one of those people who buys a whole bunch of works by the same author and hasn't read a single one?  Or is it just me? ....

    I tend to get lots by an author I have enjoyed then never get to them!
