Reading progress update: I've read 527 out of 670 pages.

The Distant Hours - Kate Morton

Bwaahahahahaaa!

 

I'll keep the spoilers to a minimum from here on but I'm convinced Morton is messing with us on purpose...to facilitate joyous games of "Tropeycal Bingo" amongst book clubs. 

 

Since my last update this morning, there are at least three more tropes to be ticked off the checklist...or called in the hypothetical bingo game.

 

 

- Love triangle

- King of the castle having an affair with the housekeeper

- Secret baby

(show spoiler)

 

 

I wonder what else Morton throws into the last 140 pages.

 

Also, from here on there is wine.
