« July 24: Reading Notes | Main | The Floating Forest »



This sounds like a very good and readable kind of book. You know, the kind you could easily finish in a sitting or two because you just can't stop reading. Will have to be on the look out for this one.


Iliana--This was hard to put down--particularly the first section as she really describes post-War England and Alice's bohemian family very well.


This does sound good. I saw that she has quite a few books out already. I'm very curious now to find out what might have happened to Nicola.

I hope my library has this one - it sounds great.


This one is completely new to me but sounds excellent. I'll check the library catalogue.

Margaret Powling

This sounds a good 'un, and one for my Wish List.

Liz F

I found this at the library after you mentioned it Danielle, and yes the twist at the end caught me by surprise too!


Excellent story.


This sounds like it was written just for you!


I love it when a random choice turns out to be an excellent read - so satisfying! I also love the period in which this novel is set, it's a favourite of mine. Definitely one to look out for.


Caroline--I liked the way the mystery was solved--not at all a typical mystery but almost like it more for that reason. And the solution worked well, too.
Margaret--I lucked out and found it in my own local library--hopefully you'll find it in yours, too.
Cath--I had not heard of her either, but I am glad I came across it. It was a nice, undemanding but entertaining read! Perfect for the hot weather we've been having.
Margaret--The setting was right up my alley and I think you might like it as well.
Liz--She floored me with that last bit. I didn't see it coming and wasn't sure if it was really fair for her to do that, but I really liked the book otherwise.
Carolinareads--Definitely a good read!
Stefanie--This one really does have my name written all over it, doesn't it?!
Litlove--It sounded good and when I started reading found I couldn't put it down. I also love that post-WWII setting--not too heavy on the period though since it is told from the perspective of a young girl. The author is British, so I think you should have luck finding her.


I like the sound of this one! A period that I enjoy and a mystery--all good.

My best finds are often at the new book shelf, too!


Jenclair--I enjoyed this and was very pleased since she was an unknown author to me. I like it, too, when I find a new book via library browsing that turn out to be surprisingly good.
