"This book is gripping and consuming, but it's also hysterically funny in all the right places. Laughing again at the vicar. So glad he doesn't take himself too seriously. But how can he when he has become the focus of English countryside gossip? And let's not forget his childhood sweetheart, back to haunt his days, aided by her hip entourage. His quiet life has gone to H-E-double-hockey-sticks. Simply brilliant." 2 hours, 10 min ago

"So many great stories about the women who took risks so we'd have the life we do now. It's really hard to pick a favorite. Every time I think I have one, another woman amazes me. All women should read this for inspiration. I've enjoyed every chapter so far." Sep 15, 2016 06:06PM

"Took me a while to get into this, but this last chapter drew me in. Strangest thing is that the chapters aren't numbered. I don't remember seeing something like that before. I like the 1920s time frame set in New South Wales where two sets of twins from the same family will train to be nurses." Sep 02, 2016 09:55AM

Now You See Me by S.J. Bolton
"I found a new favorite author here in S.J. (Sharon) Bolton. This book was brilliant! Very engrossing and intricate plot line. Highly recommended. Will definitely be going through all her works including this series. This book was the first in the..." Read more of this review »
Dorine is on page 95 of 175 of The Emperor's Soul: What a clever story. This was recommended to me by Alana when I asked Goodreads members for suggestions of tightly woven novellas, preferring a good plot with some emotion. Series tie-in okay, but it had to be a standalone. Spot on so far.

This will be my TBR Challenge post for Wendy the Super Librarian's monthly challenge due this Wednesday if I finish in time!

Charles Dickens
“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of light, it was the season of darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair.”

“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.”

Love like you'll never be hurt,
