Christmas edition – 2019

Brrr…

January started off with a huge freeze that Adam and I actually volunteered for. I asked him what he’d like for his birthday, and he chose a trip to Quebec City. We had absolutely no idea how incredibly cold it would be, but the fa

The Dead House by Harry Bingham

Harry Bingham’s imaginative books continue to fascinate me. Although I can’t really imagine the opening situation, where the body of a young girl is found, apparently dead of natural causes, in the outbuilding of a monastery. But I trust this writer, ...more

Impostor by L.J. Ross

I don’t think I’ve ever read anything by the author before, but I’ll certainly be reading more. I bought the audiobook largely because Hugh Dancy reads it. He did a fantastic job, with so many accents, Irish, Northern Irish(notoriously difficult) Eng ...more

Bombay contrasts.

I think this book will stay with me. The parallel stories of two women in Mumbai, one well-off, the other her servant, are designed to point up the fact that every woman’s life has problems. Problems caused by men, in fact. They are
