Ulla I'm eagerly awaiting Greatmask:, the final book of "The Bone Mask Trilogy" by my favourite author Ashley Capes. In the meantime I'm reading The Borderlands, Book Two: War by Aderyn Wood after I really enjoyed The Borderlands (Book One): Journey. This series features a very likeable heroine and a magical world.
And the Poetry & Place Anthology 2015 which contains many different forms of poems from international authors about places. What they mean to the authors, how they change(d) and other aspects. Very interesting indeed.

Hey Tonia! I loved Dollbaby by Laura Lane McNeal. And I'm going to guess you've maybe read The Help. And if it's just southern flavor you want, and you don't necessarily need it in a historical setting, The Sweet Potato Queens books are the best!


message 16: by Betty (new)

Betty The Past, by Tessa Hadley. Members of a family go back to their grandparent's old home in the Somerset countryside. House is full of memories but must be sold. Story is about intrigues and insecurities creating crises, real and imagined, that rise to the surface. Skillful author weaves a good and believable tale reminding us love is never simple and happiness rarely wins without sorrow.The Past
