I purchased this book with the notion that I would be reading a fictional story, this meant I was met with surprise when I read at the beginning the editor’s note which described the findings of Elizabeth’s story within a roof cavity and this book would be her story, her words. This thrilled me immediately, and I devoured the book intently. I felt as though I was living through her, I had traveled back in time to this unknown land and all of a sudden history was been stitched together in front of me. However, upon reading the authors notes at the end of the book I discovered that in fact the story that I had just read was actual fiction and the editors notes at the beginning where in fact false. The world of Elizabeth that I had created to exist in apart of my brain that was so rich and full of vivid beauty and truth was all of a sudden covered in a dark mist, I know I sound dramatic but it feels fraudulent to some degree. Maybe I’m the fool for believing too quickly.
