I've been curious about this one. What was the premise of this book?

It´s the story of a writer, Magda, who hires Emerance as a housekeeper. Emerance is a very enigmatic and secretive character, but over the years these two women become friends.However, in the very first chapter Magda tells us that she is responsible for the death of Emerance. So the whole novel is buildung up to that point.

Does it kinda spoil the story to know what will happen from the beginning? I sometimes find that this gets in the way of the story.

Yes, it kind of does, because I expected something more exciting than the story had to offer. It´s a character driven story and there lies the problem for me: I didn´t like the characters at all.
What a shame ... :(
