A Woman of Note is a page-turner. The protagonist, Isabette, is an unusual and fascinating character. Her physical stature plays into the story in a manner that is so believable and compelling. I immediately sympathized with the challenges she faced ...more

Chasing the Phantom by Eduard Fischer

I hated to come to the end of Chasing the Phantom. Fischer's humility and sense of humour add depth to a book that is so many things; an epic journey, a philosophical treatise, a love story, a memoir. It made me look at the world through a new lens - ...more

“The best thing for being sad," replied Merlin, beginning to puff and blow, "is to learn something. That's the only thing that never fails. You may grow old and trembling in your anatomies, you may lie awake at night listening to the disorder of your veins, you may miss your only love, you may see the world about you devastated by evil lunatics, or know your honour trampled in the sewers of baser minds. There is only one thing for it then — to learn. Learn why the world wags and what wags it. That is the only thing which the mind can never exhaust, never alienate, never be tortured by, never fear or distrust, and never dream of regretting. Learning is the only thing for you. Look what a lot of things there are to learn.”
T.H. White, The Once and Future King
