Happy Sunday everyone. I have been to work this morning, now home and making Quince Jelly. So while it is simmering away, I will talk about what I am currently reading, what I am planning on reading in the coming week, and what new approvals I have received.
Currently I am reading
I remember my mother enjoying this author. I blew hot and cold on this book for the first third, but now 2/3 through I am enjoying it.
In 1926 the Holborn twins, Ginny and her blind sister Emily, disappear from their comfortable home in Wolverhampton. Why? No one knew. Ten years later, aspiring solicitor Charlie Commoner is dispatched to France to track them down. What he finds instead is a mystery, a tragedy and a love affair.
But as the Second World War darkens over Europe, so, too, does the legacy from a terrifying disease that holds the family in its grip . . .
I need to download a new audiobook book, but as we are going away Thursday, I probably won’t bother until we get back.
As you may have gathered, I have not yet started on
which was on last week’s list. . .
You’ve lost your daughter.
She’s addicted to drugs and to an abusive boyfriend. And she’s made it clear that she doesn’t want to be found.
Then, quite by chance, you see her busking in New York’s Central Park.
But she’s not the girl you remember. This woman is wasted, frightened and clearly in trouble.
You don’t stop to think. You approach her, beg her to come home.
The perfect picture hides the darkest lies.
A new home can be a happy ending. Or a fresh start. Or a hiding place…
Kate Jones is running away. She has left her old life behind, changing both her own name and her daughter’s. No-one must ever connect Kate with the mistake that destroyed her life.
Starting afresh on Parkview Road – a brand new street full of newly built houses – Kate looks at the other women on the street with envy. They seem to have it all: Gisela with her busy life, full house and successful children, Sally with her exciting spontaneous marriage, her glamorous holidays, her high-flying career. The pictures that Kate’s new friends post online confirm their seemingly perfect existence, whilst Kate hides from the world at all costs.
Until one day, everything changes. Kate is called to the scene of a devastating accident, which is about to test everything the women thought they knew about each other, and themselves.
My requesting finger has been a bit out of control this week. . .this week I have received
So much for only two requests a week so that I can reduce my huge pile of back titles. I have no self control when it comes to books, okay?!
Tomorrow is the first day of the new financial year here in New Zealand, so between stocktaking, closing off the financial records for the year, setting up for the new financial year, and doing rollover of our membership records, and getting everything set up for my relief staff while I am away, I am unlikely to get anything posted, possibly for a couple of days.
So until next time, happy reading my friends. 💕📚
