Matthews in the Snow!

"I shall start at the beginning. Though of course the beginning is never where you think it is. Our lives are so important to us that we tend to think that the story of them begins with our birth. First there was nothing, then I was born... Yet that is not so. Human lives are not pieces of string that can be separated out from a knot of others and laid out straight. Families are webs. Impossible to touch one part of it without setting the rest vibrating. Impossible to understand one part without having a sense of the whole." - Diane Setterfield The Thirteenth Tale
