Ther View On The Way Down - Rebecca Wait
We know, very near the start of the story that a boy is dead.  Not a
small child, but someone in their late teens/early twenties.  We know

returned.  We know that there is a younger sist...

Blessings of all kinds for the New Year.  Glad to see you and hope that all is well in your part of the world.  My friend in Nova Scotia reports strange extremes of weather, and of course, sub-freezing temps.  Here in the English south west, we missed the l...

Mrs Mac suggests...... what to read in JANUARY 2018
Hello!  Hope you had the Christmas you wanted.  And now it's time for me to wish you the New Year you hope for.  If you think it odd that neither of my comments contain the words "Happy" or Merry", it's because life is not the same for everyone - and maybe ...

The Blessing - Nancy Mitford
One of those books that has remained on the shelf for years..... and so glad I read it when I was looking for something short and light.  This entertaining tale, set immediately after WW2 is an eye opener if you know nothing of the English and the French cl...

Guernica - Dave Boling
I'll bet you thought I had won the lottery and run away, no?  Sorry faithful readers.  New kitchen being fitted does slow down the reading, but here I am: Because of the the goings-on in Barcelona earlier this year, I pulled this one off the shelf for my Re...

Mrs Mac says OOOPs! because she forgot What to Read in November
Visitors from Canada, a completely new kitchen fitted,  complete (or nearly!) exhaustion, loss of a set of front door keys (found them) and all sorts of small stuff.  Remember that book called Don't Sweat the Small Stuff?   Sadly, whilst excellent advice, t...
