Judith Praag and 4 other people liked Mook's review of The Ghost Keeper:
The Ghost Keeper by Natalie Morrill
"It’s hard to know where to start, with The Ghost Keeper. It’s not incorrect to say it’s a story about a man in Vienna, during the Second World War, who looks after the graveyards. But that’s not really the important part. It’s not the heart of the..." Read more of this review »
Gedwongen kampliefde. by Ellen Keith
" PS jammer dat de titel van het naar mijn idee origineel in jet Engels geschreven en gepubliceerde boek The Dutch Wife zo’n misser lijkt te zijn. "
Gedwongen kampliefde. by Ellen Keith
"De directe schrijfstijl en opbouw van het verhaal tonen het talent van de auteur. Door genuanceerder in te gaan op de drijfveren en motivatie van de personages had het verhaal ook de nodige diepgang kunnen krijgen. Gedwongen kampliefde is een verd..." Read more of this review »
The Dutch Wife by Ellen Keith
" Always appreciate an honest, analytical review that shows how fiction allows readers to stand in another’s shoes and gain empathy. Thanks much Mel! "
The Dutch Wife by Ellen Keith
"The historical fiction coming out in the last few years that depicts regular people and their lives in extenuating circumstances has really been wonderful. I now add The Dutch Wife to the list of really great writing and storytelling.

Esther Freud
“Trust your reader. Not everything needs to be explained. If you really know something, and breathe life into it, they'll know it too.”
Esther Freud

“Perhaps robbing someone of his or her story is the greatest betrayal of all.”
Anna Fels

Arthur Rimbaud
“I is another.”
Arthur Rimbaud

Arthur Rimbaud
“The poet, therefore, is truly the thief of fire.
He is responsible for humanity, for animals even; he will have to make sure his visions can be smelled, fondled, listened to; if what he brings back from beyond has form, he gives it form; if it has none, he gives it none. A language must be found…of the soul, for the soul and will include everything: perfumes, sounds colors, thought grappling with thought”
Arthur Rimbaud

“The one thing we can never get enough of is love. And the one thing we never give enough of is love.”

Seattle Writers, no doubt. If I recall well you would have come to Panama Hotel lounge if you had been available for ad hoc writing/ chat? Plus we follow each other on Twitter, I'm the Dutchess Abroad, rings a bell?


Julene Welcome to Goodreads! I don't come here too much, but when I want to check out a book it is a great resource. And I like the ability to track what I read and make some notes. I can also use it to track my to read books, then when I'm heading to a book store it's easy to look up and remember what I want to search for.

Enjoy. I know I know you from somewhere. Wompo? Facebook? Seattle writer?

Anna, So sweet of you to come over the moment I entered this room. For me the problem with GoodReads will be the time getting the hang of using it I'm afraid.
Did you get any books for Christmas? Or gift certificates?
