Instances of the Number 3
Salley Vickers strikes gold again. After Miss Garnet's Angel, I decided to read whatever else Salley Vickers had written. I am now reading Instances Of the Number 3. Instances...is as Intriguing and originally plotted as Miss Garnet...Peter has died, and we find his widow and his mistress beginning to know each other due to some cause neither really can identify. Upon the scene comes a lovely boy, dark with brilliant blue eyes, a "friend" of Peter's whom Bridget, his wife, soon lets move into her home when she finds out that he, Zahin, has no where to live at present. The threads of relationships seem unfathomable, yet as things happen day to day the supernatural which surrounds us slowly reveals itself in bits to our protagonists. Bridget is really the main character around whom the novel moves, and I look forward to the next chapter.
