Book Beginning : The Storyteller by Jodi Picoult

My father trusted me with the details of his death. "Ania," he would say,"no whiskey at my funeral. I want the finest blackberry wine. No weeping, mind you. Just dancing.And when they lower me into the ground, I want a fanfare of trumpets, and white butterflies" A character was my father. .....


Wouldn't we all like a fanfare of trumpets and white butterflies when we are lowered into the ground.....

A very kind friend passed this book onto me and I have resisted the temptation to dive straight into the story but there seems to be a consensus amongst readers that this is Jodi Picoult's best book to date , so I've come to a decision.....why wait .....

Thanks for visiting my Friday Book Beginnings.
