I'm a day later than usual but the Man of the House is in hospital so nothing is running to the normal routine. A quick dash to the library this afternoon where I managed to fill the loot bag from the returns shelf in a very short time.
My Dear I Wanted to Tell you by Louisa Young.......another WWI story - the title makes me think this might be a tear-jerker!
Tides of War by Stella Tillyard......historical fiction - Regency London and Spain during the Peninsular War. Longlisted for the Orange prize.
The Translation of the Bones by Francesca Kay - " when word gets out that Mary-Margaret O'Reilly may have been witness to a miracle, religious mania descends on the Church of the Sacred Heart in Battersea." Another one longlisted for the Orange Prize.
The Lantern by Deborah Lawrenson.........I became so tired of hearing about this book last year I cancelled the hold I had on it. Now things are quieter I can sit back and enjoy it.
The House at Seas End by Elly Griffiths.........'A team of archaeologists investigating coastal erosion unearths bodies at the foot of a Norfolk cliff'.....the third in the series featuring forensics expert Ruth Galloway.
Foal's Bread by Gillian Mears........Set in Australia it's the story of two generations of the Nancarrow family and their battle with the land and the rural high-jumping circuit.
