(e)Book Read! A Pair of Blue Eyes
First sentence: “Elfride Swancourt was a girl whose emotions lay very near the surface.”
P. 99: “‘We would tell papa soon, would we not?’, she inquired timidly.”
Last Sentence: “And side by side they both retraced their steps down the grey still valley to Castle Boterel.”
This book was exactly as I thought it would be, a nice and cosy read abut a young, naive girl who is easily influenced by the people around her and who judges herself and her deeds harshly, too harshly. The book has a tragic but fitting ending.
This book was the 15th I read for the 2011 E-Book Challenge!
