There are 217 pages, the font is large, and the page margins are large too, so I don't think this one will take long to read. In fact before I knew it 40 pages had slipped by in flash.

It was snowing the morning I found the dead boy. The island with it's two houses and one church was covered in a layer of white.
Papa was pulling in the fishing nets when I saw a hand between two rocks. It looked like a magic trick; almost as if a bunch of roses was about to appear - boom! There you are, for you - and then applause. But everything was quiet and the hand didn't move.
Looking forward to the rest.
