This weeks read is Richard Russo’s The Whore’s Child and Other Stories.
In this title story, a septuagenarian nun resolutely invades the narrator’s college writing workshop with an incredible saga; a seasoned Hollywood moviemaker uncovers a 25 year old flame he never knew he’d harboured; another child is forced into a harrowing cross-country escape; and more.
I am also listening to Ruth Ware’s The Woman in Cabin 10.
In this tightly wound story, Lo Blacklock, a journalist who writes for a travel magazine, has just been given the assignment of a lifetime: a week on a luxury cruise with only a handful of cabins. At first, Lo’s stay is nothing but pleasant: the cabins are plush, the dinner parties are sparkling, and the guests are elegant. But as the week wears on, frigid winds whip the deck, gray skies fall, and Lo witnesses what she can only describe as a nightmare: a woman being thrown overboard. The problem? All passengers remain accounted for—and so, the ship sails on as if nothing has happened, despite Lo’s desperate attempts to convey that something (or someone) has gone terribly, terribly wrong…
I love the woman who is narrating this!
Makes my workouts on the treadmill go by quickly.
Along with my Charlotte Square, I am working on a Moutarde tas felted project bag (free pattern on Ravelry by Puk Vossen).
I’m using Patons Classic Worsted Wool in Sunset Gold and Cream.
I just need to finish the handles and toss it in the washing machine.
I don’t want this to felt a ton, just enough 😉
Have a great week!
