After an absolutely beautiful summery (yes, even though it is the middle of winter here in New Zealand) morning, the wind is now whipping the trees, the temperature has dropped and rain is threatening. Of course,I was at work all morning….but at least the washing dried.
Where have you all travelled this week? I am currently in Sugarberry Cove, Alabama, courtesy of Heather Webber’s The Lights of Sugarberry Cove. It is an entertaining read and I really didn’t want to leave this wonderful family this morning to go to work.
I am still in the USA somewhere, I can’t pinpoint the location so if anyone can help me out here I would be grateful, listening to False Witness by Karin Slaughter.
Ànd I am also popping into Fairview near Hastings, England with Leah Mercer and A Mother’s Lie.
I have also been to the East Anglian Fens, Midgley/Hebden also near Hastings, England, and the Australian Central Queensland outback.
This week I am planning on reading The Dating Duel by Christine Cameron, an author ARC.
and The Butterfly Garden by Sophie Anderson which is requested after reading Carla’s wonderful review. (carlalovestoread.wordpress.com)
I blamed my son for the death of my daughter…
When twenty-five-year-old Erin flees London for Cornwall and takes a job at Hookes End, a huge house clinging precariously to the Cornish cliffs, all she knows about it are the stories people tell. The owner, reclusive novelist and butterfly enthusiast Maggie, has kept the curtains of her dusty house drawn for many years. But now she is dying, and Erin, seeing the shadows that cross Maggie’s face, wants to help in any way she can.
Years ago, Maggie’s only son Lucas ran away to the other side of the world and the searing heat of the Costa Rican jungle. Maggie is desperate to see Lucas again – there is something she needs him to know.
Erin wants to help Maggie find peace. But when she travels to the warm white sands and tropical butterfly gardens of Costa Rica to find Lucas, it becomes very clear that he is hiding something too.
As Erin unravels the webs of deceit entangling mother and son, she learns about the terrible tragedy that changed their lives forever: the night when a little girl in a fairy nightdress went missing. But with Maggie’s time fast running out, is it too late for them to find the forgiveness they need to move on?
What are you planning on reading this week?
